Text

Start: Seumas: (sleepily) Donal, Donal, are you awake? (Pause.) Donal, Donal, are you asleep?
Davoren: I’m neither awake nor asleep: I’m thinking.

End: Davoren: Why should I be afraid of it? It’s all the same to me how it comes, where it comes, or when it comes. I leave fear of death to the people that are always praying for eternal lie; ‘Death is here and death is there, death is busy everywhere.’
