LATER WHILE WALKING THE STREETS AND WEAR-
ING MY BOX LIKE ALWAYS, I SAW SOMETHING
I HADN'T SEEN FOR A LONG TIME... WHY THAT'S
MY EX-HOUSE. IT ISN'T REALLY A HOME ANY-
MORE SINCE I STARTED WEARING THIS BOX.
I LIVE IN IT LIKE A THOUSAND BOXMEN ON THE
STREETS EVERYWHERE. NOBODY SEES THEM,
ANY BOX ON ANY STREET. I WONDER WHO LIVES
THERE NOW. "WELCOME HOME MR. NILES"
I DON'T LIVE HERE, I LIVE IN THIS BOX. "ARE YOU
SURE?" WHERE ARE YOU? ANYWAY "IN THE
BOX" WELL, COME OUT OF THERE I WANT TO
SEE YOU. "NO YOU COME IN". YOU COME OUT
OR I'LL COME IN AND GET YOU. "COME ON,
COME ON etc. OPEN IT. "ALRIGHT I WILL... OH OH
IT'S GARBAGE DAY I ALMOST FORGOT...

Based on Kobo Abe's The Boxman: A Novel
