Dancing #55


I heard behind me the irregular flap-flap-flap of approaching feet. Helega sought me!
His smiling face revealed his innocence, his ignorance - while I stood nearby, feeling myself ignorant of all innocence.
Yes, his face showed that his joy was unbridled. Though he danced with a corpse, her disfigured body and clumsy movement betraying some fatal accident, he laughed gaily. Though those around him danced in various states of decomposition, he was oblivious to their monstrous existence.
He was oblivious, too, to the blood pouring from the tattered flesh of his unclad feet as they continued pounding the floor.
