Mr.derry
You could lock yourself up in a room and never leave it. There was a man
who did that. He was afraid of everything. Everything in this world. A
bus might run him over, or a man might breathe deadly germs onto him, or
a donkey might kick him to death, or So he went into this room, and locked
the door.
For ever?
For a
while.
Then
what?
A picture fell off
the wall on to his
head and killed
him.
But....you still say
peculiar things.You see?
Peculiar
to some.
What do you
do all day?
But there aren’t
any curtainsat the
windows.
Sit in the sun. Read
books. Ah, you thought it
was an empty house, but
inside, it’s full. Books and
other things. Full.
I’m not fond of curtains.
Shutting things out,shutting
things in. I like the light and
the darkness, and the
windows open, to hear the
wind.
Yes. I like that.
When it’s raining, I
like to hear it on
the roof
So you’re not lost, are
you? Not altogether? You
do hear things. You listen.
They talk about me. Downstairs, When
I’m not there. ‘What’ll he ever do?
What’s going to happen to him when
we’ve gone? How ever will he get on in
this world? Looking like that? With
that on his face?’ That’s what they say.
Lord, boy, you’ve got two arms, two
legs and eyes ears, you’ve got a
tongue and a brain. You’ll get on
the way you want, like all the rest.
And if you chose, and set your mind
to it, you could get on better than
all the rest.
Same way
as I do.
How?
Do you have
any friends?
Hundreds.
But you live by
yourself in that
house. It’s a big
house, too.
Friends everywhere. People come in....
Everybody knows me. The gate’s always
open. They come and sit here. And in
front of the fire in winter. Kids come for
the apples and pears. And for toffee. I
make toffee with honey. Anybody
comes. So have you.
Certainly you are. So
far as I’m concerned.
What have you done to
make me think you’re
not?
But I’m not
a friend.
You don’t know me.
You don’t know
where I come from or
even what my name is.
Why should that signify?
Do I have to write all
your particulars down and
put them in a filing
box, before you can be a
friend?
I suppose...not.
No.
You could tell me
your name. If you
chose. And not, if
you didn’t.
Derry. Only it’s
Derek....but I hate that.
Derry. If I’m your friend,
you don’t have to be mine.
I choose that.
Certainly.
I might never come here
again, you might never
see me again and then I
couldn’t still be a
friend.
Why not?
How could I? You pass people in the
street and you might even speak to
them, but you never see them again.
It doesn’t mean they’re friends.
