Storyboard Text

  • I Walked Out One Evening by W. H. Auden
  • Bristol Street Cafe
  • Love has no ending...
  • The years shall run like rabbits, for in my arms I hold the Flower of the Ages, and the first love of the world. But all the clocks in the city began to whirr and chime: O let not Time deceive you, you cannot conquer Time.
  • In the burrows of the Nightmare where Justice naked is, Time watches from the shadow and coughs when you would kiss.
  • The glacier knocks in the cupboard, the desert sighs in the bed, and the crack in the tea-cup opens a lane to the land of the dead.
  • It is late, late in the evening, the lovers they are gone; the clocks had ceased their chiming, and the deep river runs on.
