He spirals down like Alice in wonderland. Red lipstick, red heels, red skirt she commands  like a rose in a house of glass. Eyes piercing through walls, the brakes of his heart screeching. Smoke pouring out of his ears and nose, damp thoughts on tumble dry. The boom in his chest is somewhere between imagined and audible. Painfully self conscious of his every detail. Cheeks flush, his hair suddenly feels greasy, his shoulders drooping lower to the ground. Reminder stab like needles in the back. Fix posture, deep breaths, controlled and measure to the beat of heels and sway of hips, each step a tiny staple driven into his lungs. Beads of sweat run like paint down the sides of his body. The air conditioner coughs, startling him. Jaw unhinged yet no words come, squirming like a toad.
