Traveler (featuring a Tour Guide of The Confidential Theater), 2017 | Happening

Pier 2, Fort Mason, San Francisco

Along the shore the cloud waves break / The twin suns sink behind the lake / The shadows lengthen / In Carcosa. Strange is the night where black stars rise / And strange moons circle through the skies / But stranger still is / Lost Carcosa. Songs that the Hyades shall sing / Where flap the tatters of the King / Must die unheard in / Dim Carcosa. Song of my soul, my voice is dead / Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed / Shall dry and die in / Lost Carcosa.

- "Cassilda's Song" in The King in Yellow: Act 1, Scene 2 

Written by Robert Chambers
