There's Only One Sun (2007, Wong Kar Wai)

He calls it their stage, which echoes our first misrecognition of unity. Instances/ of false unity, he calls the imaginary, and he locates in them sites of her dreams,/out of which she is able to want him. The way stage lighting can be a story by itself, now/ she makes time for a story, not coming from her or her coming from her story, but both from before, /… Remembering what I heard you say and fixing my desire for you simultaneously, a meaning/ of instability, not hesitance, holds you and the swans accountable for making the desire, / although the meaning of desire existed prior to being desired.

“The Swan,” Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge
