i’m as upright as i want to be
i also want to be this much standing up, alone
we’re both happy with this situation
i’m alone and touching nothing but gold
stay perfectly still if you are also happy to be enrobed with a thousand linens with no way to feel the breeze on any of your skin too
this is comfortable and good for both of us
how my dress is so long i can’t walk or move or see my feet
that’s a good thing to me
it’s like a hammock
im so happy this way
the way that i am
what fun, to be together and starched and touching like this all together
what a good time that we are all having here together
four is a good age for corsets
I’m so happy, darling
I as well.
And are you happy, Clarence?
Yes, dear. Quite.
Then we’re all happy.
im a parade
of course i’m happy
i’m just as happy as Mother here
i will outlast all of you
