A Very Unique Gift

She once said to me:
“I often dream of the endless party. The one where everyone gets caught in a trance.
And you wonder if you are the only one who feels like leaving.
You know what I mean?
And the more you feel like leaving, the more it feels like a repetitive torture to stay.
Like… Marguerite with the devil!
Or eating bar-food for dinner.
The sensation of forced containment… to avoid getting kicked out of The Society.
Dancing like chewing gum. And singing like it’s the only thing to do.
There is an idiotic, dark cabaret.
And a cinematographic sliding diva.
A frame around conversations…
A word above the absence of sight.
And elevator music, gently whispering.”
