Shall we play a game?
Yes, let's. A game of shapeshifters, of roles taken and traded. Let me cast off the uniform of everyday and become - other.
Let us build fleeting palaces, pleasure domes and dungeons, on these scraps of time and temporary homes.
Let us play a game of secrets, of letters hidden in books and messages left in dead drops.
Let us play a game of masks, of Carnival license and masqued balls, of figures cloaked and covert without, unmasked, revealed within.
Let us play at being all the things we are, change skins, change faces from role to role, persona to persona.
With every mask removed, every cloak of fur or feathers put on or off, more is revealed.
With revelation, the game expands.
