STOMACH GURGLING
WALK ON STAGE
HOLD UP SCREEN

     sorry
     you’ll have to
     forgive me


     i’m not very good
     at this sort of thing
     and
     i’m a bit nervous



     BUT
     OK



     it’s kind of hard to know where
     to start


     THERE’S
     SOMETHING
     I’D LIKE US
     TO TALK ABOUT

     i’d usually polish off
     all of my dessert
     by now
     in this case blancmange


FKA TWIGS
SPOTLIGHT
     NO

     there’s something
     a little uncomfortable about it

     perhaps if this blancmange was
     less consistent
     in its consistency
     i’d be ok
     but it’s friday
     and we all know what that means

 


FADE OUT GRADIENT
FADE IN SPOTLIGHT
“Do Me Baby” – Jean Knight (Superbad Soundtrack)

     it sits on a plate
     and i sit alone
     with it
     and a glass of something
     carbonated

     perhaps it would be best
     if we began with the face



WALK OFF STAGE

     let’s get back to the face

     i move the legs in rhythm too
     every once in a while the toes will
     linger just out of frame


ORANGE SMOKE



     oh, look
     !

     there they are
     struggling to concentrate
     but i know they’re still there




MASK SWEEP ON + SMOKE

     let’s just get back to the face

ZZZ ZZZ ZZZ ZZZ ZZZ ZZZ ZZZ ZZZ
NO  NO  NO  NO  NO  NO  NO  NO

 


     but alone i sit with the blancmange
     and the plate it sits on

     and i have to wonder
     what might happen
     if instead of putting it in my face
     via the mouth
     or whatever
     if i was to put it on my face

PUT DOWN SCREEN
PICK UP BLANCMANGE

     are you going to eat that?

“Des Droid” – Level 67
MAIN SPOTLIGHT



WOBBLING THE BLANCMANGE
EATING THE BLANCMANGE
BALANCING THE BLANCMANGE ON MY FACE



     i tried using my fingers to eat the blancmange
     after missing the cutlery en route


AHHHHHH
BEAT


     but just imagining the way the
     dessert would sit
     on the tongue
     delicate and creamy
     with a faint possibility of vanilla
    
(vahnillah)

     and a much greater possibility
     of slipping
     suddenly down the throat

WOO!!!

 



     IT’S BEST NOT TO THINK ABOUT IT

INVERT>YELLOW GRADIENT
NOTE



     something between mousse and flan
     i guess
     foamy and blubbery
     for want of a better word


     not melt in the mouth
     but not in need of too much
     intervention either

 


     LET’S JUST
     PUT IT
     ON
     MY
     FACE

 



     there’s something really
     uncomfortable about blancmange

OPEN MOUTH AND OLD SCHOOL BEAT
DROP VOLUME///

     ok well
     i’m just going to speak as loosely
     as possible here
     so as not to flatten
     or
     deflate the tongue



     tongues


     tongues being the sole reason
     for an unusually plump face


     plump face
     PLUMP FACE

     so fucki//////
     so incredibly overblown
     and out of proportion

luh-luh-lemonade

 


     the thing about the
     ton-guh

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HANDS + SPIRAL


     let’s try and keep this precise here:


/    that very moment an airbag
     begins to compress the face

     your face

     your defined cheekbones and
     your chiseled jaw
     narrowly prevent the features from
     complete collapse

     a seemingly impenetrable mass of goop
     sharing resemblances
     and/or

     with blood

     and ketchup
     surprisingly


BLOOD
FKA TWIGS
WHITE + NOTE + YELLOW SPLAT


     now sits upon the face
     and shares the responsibility of an egg yolk
     in forming an emulsion
     ever so slowly encroaching on my
     landscaped expression


     the deep-set sockets
     and the nostrils
     and the ears
     and the mouth
     and the


ZZZZZZZZ

 


     all the features marrying together
     under the weight of the
     sumptuous dessert

     sorry
     i said

     this has come as a bit of a surprise
     i’m too busy keeping up with the
     incredible influx of dessert to
     know whats going on


     besides
     i never got to ask your name

     come to think of it
     this whole date has been a little
     wishy-washy


     WISHY WASHY WISHY WASHY

 


     but here i sit
     reveling in the third course

WALK OFF STAGE

     amused by the possibilty
     that something as harmless as blancmange
     could essentially amputate
     four out of five senses
