It starts smoothly, but it grows harder as the taste of alcohol burns hotter in our mouths. Words that the talker thinks they are funny linger in our ears as stern miniRambos looking for revenge. Teeth scratch sideways and you hold the glass tighter, trying to let the burning rage get discharged from the limbs to the ground, as if you were a overcharged electric appliance trying to balance the electrical charge and avoid a short-circuit. You feel into an invisible cage, you know it will raise the tension even more if you stand up and walk away, you wonder why the words can generate that drowning invisible force field, or maybe it comes from our own minds, maybe a hoax is nothing more (and nothing less!) that a mind switch-changer, and our minds, nothing more than a dumb control panel so easy to manipulate. But the heat still lingers down, over the stomach, and there is no connection to the ground, and the lights go redder and you breathe strong, each breath as tight as a pair of stalactites coming in and out from the nostrils. Reply stands on the tip of the tongue, bitter as the blood when you bite your own tongue, and you know they can't be thrown because they will bounce back faster from the invisible force field strings and you finally mind-shout please let me go out of here. Where this is supposed to go, when it will finally end?
