Steeply: Not for eyes like that.
Marathe: You would say it does not capture these eyes’ expression.
Steeply: The expressions seem more like - fuck, how to say it. Fuck.
Marathe: Petrified. Ossified. Inanimate.
Steeply: No. Not inanimate. More like the opposite. More as if …stuck in some way.
Marathe: What is it this wishes here to mean? Glued?
Steeply: Stuck. Fixed. Held. Trapped. As in trapped in some sort of middle. Between two things. Pulled apart in different directions.
Marathe: Meaning different cravings of great intensity, this.
Steeply: Not even cravings so much. Emptier than that. As if he were stuck wondering. As if there was something he’d forgotten.
Marathe: Misplaced. Lost
Marathe: As you wish.
