Today, tomorrow, never

The horizontal line of the walls around us. A border.
The vertical line of the bars between us. A border.
The straight line of the back I don’t bend. A border.
The broken line of the gaze you move away. A border.
Borders to count, to cross, to escape. Today, tomorrow, never.

Today, tomorrow, never is a scenario consisting of phases and rituals, just like the prison life it seeks to recreate. Standing between the characters are more than obvious, physical barriers: these subtle, impalpable borders will prove no easier to cross. The only thing we have is plenty of time to try.
