A woman lies briefly on top of crimson covers.  Her eyes travel across lavender spikes.  Fragrance trapped against thick glass.  She caresses a strand of hair and her mind drifts towards a time not long ago.  A door opens gingerly onto a long, narrow room.  An overflowing ashtray fumes on the corner of a wooden trestle table.  Chemicals ooze across the room as potions and lotions are worked into flesh, folds, eyes, hair and breasts.  Mmmmm.  The drama of the other.  Being someone and no-one.  Hips shift from left to right and a choked chuckle scratches the throat.  Joyful self-knowledge and grinning despair.  Moist crimson smile of deceiving lips, and twinkling promise of the deepest kiss.  Waiting to step into the cruel light.  An empty well.  Waiting to be filled by whoever sits behind the glow.  Waiting to inhale.
