“I used to have a nose and a mouth. Now all people can see is a blue cloth with pleats and stitches. My new profile includes an elastic band.”
WIDE SHOT OF STREETS IN NYC 60% SPEED (SLOW MOTION)
“When I see the streets of New York City, all I see is emptiness, like if I was watching an apocalyptic movie. The few survivors in my movie, walk around like me, in a surreal environment where we all have eyes and blue faces. It’s like everything else around us but that blue has become a monotone cold hue.”
I then open my eyes and realize that it was last week when I saw those few survivors walking. I have been home with my dog, I have lost sense of time, and all I can hear in my head is a voice.
The virus is spreading, more people going into ICU, nurses, and doctors are being affected too, a tiger also got it….
“… a what?”
That brings me back to reality and I simply start laughing…
“… how can a tiger have it? Are all animals going to die?”
SHE FALLS ASLEEP….
