ever since I came down the steps

Who are you?


That’s your name?

Mark was what they called me when I came down the steps. I guess it suited me. I kept the name, anyway; it seemed the right thing to do at the time.

Did you have a name before that?

Does it matter?

Did you?

I can’t remember.

Can’t you remember?

I just said I couldn’t.


(pause, intake of breath)

(breathily) I can’t remember, no.

So you chose your own name?

They chose it, they said it.

But you chose to keep it?

It seemed like the right thing to do.

So you did it?

So I did it.

Did what?

(pause, intake of breath)

(breathily) I kept the name.



That’s your name. Mark.

Ever since I came down the steps, yes.

(writing) M – a – r – k…

Yes. Ever since I came down the steps. Mark.
