Then the idea strikes. Why hadn’t it occurred to Jesse’s fading hair before. It occurs to Jesse’s fading hair, as it crouches there, next to Ooooooooorrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnngggggggggggeeeeeee, that it might be possible to hoodwink them all, to pull off the trick they have been playing on people since they were young: to exchange places, leading people to believe that each was the other.

II
The Bath takes a deep breath, bracing its stiff joints to rise.
Groan-clunk-groan
The Bath is a slow mover.
A while later it has risen, beginning to articulate and move
ambling past Jesse’s fading hair and Ooooooooorrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnngggggggggggeeeeeee
in no particular order.
Desire and value is really, really ready to leave.
Back turned with posture
so straight, so tall
that the lowest point of its flop towers above The Bath.
What a weird pair, The Bath and Desire and value,
landscape and portrait.
Decay and decay.
Arm-in-arm they approach Extraordinary popular delusions and the madness of crowds.
A downpour en-route causes quite the scene, the weird pair become a streaky pair.
Interiority on display.

III
Tragedy!
