Marionette shines in the spotlight.
“You are a superstar, young lady!”
“I am no more than a puppet attached to the make-believe! These ideal scenarios! These insurmountable expectations! These flashing images of perfection! My imagination pulls the strings!”
“But you are at the center of the stage!”
“I am tied back by the theatre of an overactive imagination!”
With a razor in hand Marionette breaks free and collapses, for she never properly learned how to keep her feet on the ground.
