Dancing #54

by

I had no need to look far. He danced closest to the door, and danced as if mocking my fears. Oh, his purity and ignorance, the poor fellow! His eyes sparkled and shone in his joy and innocence. He was in ecstasy as he whirled, whispering to his grotesque partner, laughing often, loud and long; and he danced as if there was nothing else to live for but dancing in this long, neverending night.
Then, when he spied me, he gestured with his head to "Join in!" but the stench of decay and putrefaction fingered my throat and I vomited.
