Ahab One View

There’s a man in an empty white room. With no more white whales to hunt down, the vigour and faith that once have carried the man have vanished along with his mission. Alone, he’s sending paper boats down a rill running through the void. Keeping himself safe in his white world until one day he finally decides to dare his way out by drowning himself in a tub. Or is he actually leaving his hideout, heading for the sea? Either way the conclusion is the same: he dies. But the conclusion is not the matter in question.
