Diva


[Singing]

You’ve been a bit silly to believe that you have got the world out there.




Hag


[Singing]

You are love and love is you.

The rest is a dream that you are having.




Diva


[Singing]

I am love and love is me.

You are like a frog living in a well.




Hag


[Singing]

You believe the well is the world, not knowing the true world lies outside of it.




Diva


You are the poor frog trapped in your own imagination.




Valet


My own imagination?




Diva & Hag


Yes!




Valet


You are my imagination!




Hag


So are you!



Valet


Who am I?

Or, rather, what am I?




Diva


Idiot…




Valet


[To Diva]

Then, who are you?




Diva


I can be clouds.




Valet


[To Hag]

Who are you?




Hag


I can be water.




Valet


[To Diva]

Where do you come from?




Diva


I don’t know.
