clues and anomalies
an insight into cv week
location: kitchen trash can. eight empty bottles of vodka. her roommate has been gone for days, so she knows they can't be hers. it would explain why she can't remember very much and why her throat and stomach hurt like hell.
location: bedside table. mens prescription glasses. she suspects she knows who they belong to, but she doesn't remember inviting him over, what they might have said ... or done.
location: her mailbox. a post-card, blank except for two initials "K.P". on the back, the hubble telescope image of the pillars of creation, large columns of interstellar gas and dust in the eagle nebula. it seems eerily familiar.
location: bookshelf. her dog-eared copy of homer's 'the odyssey'. a passage is bookmarked --
"whoso draws nigh them unwittingly and hears the sound of the sirens’ voice, never doth he see wife or babes stand by him on his return, nor have they joy at his coming; but the sirens enchant him with their clear song, sitting in the meadow, and all about is a great heap of bones of men, corrupt in death, and round the bones the skin is wasting."
location: bathroom sink. a wayward towel is stained red with hair dye, and when she stands under the light and looks in the mirror, she can see a crimson sheen to her dark brown hair. she vaguely remembers stepping into the shower, watching as the water ran from red to clear.
location: living room. the dvd player is in use, disc one of disney's 'the little mermaid'. the movie is paused at 44:31.
location: iphone. her spotify playlists have been updated. hundreds of celtic albums have been added to her collection. the current playlist churns through songs by enya. when she opens up the app, this begins to play.
