dream of coco

function room
dinner and dance
no themed decor
madame emcee wants me
to introduce the next act
I had to switch slippers to sneakers on stage
set up the CD player
learn to pronounce french song titles-
elsewhere, I’m in a glass house
Escher stairs, wife unseen, but felt
-CD player with disordered numbers in LCD grids
different flashing squares
which was play, record, pause?
I am relieved.
someone has come to man the audio desk
the crossdressing singer arrives
function room turns into convention hall
a political spy follows her to every show
uninvited,
watching from the back, arms crossed, listening for sedition in french lyrics
searchlights on feather boa
everyone is chanting:
“coco! coco! coco! coco!”
