This is in a lane somewhere. There’s a good looking car on the street. It’s on a main street. It’s not too long ago. Her name is Matilda, and she has a red wig on. She has some raggy clothes on. She looks like an Indian Squaw. She’s got a paper toque on her head. She’s wearing white framed glasses. Her t-shirt says, “with a hurricane problem”. She’s laughing real hard about her red wig on her head. I look at her and I think about the poor little rich girl.
There’s someone on the snow in the background. One car is being towed behind another, one’s older than the other. It may be spring because the snow is melting. There’s garbage in the back of the car, or maybe it’s snow. It looks like it’s a Halloween Party. Is she laughing, or crying? She’s thinking about herself in that outfit. She’s getting her picture taken.
I think she’s a man, but I’m not sure. She has nail polish on. It’s a man pretending to be a woman. He’s got big hands. He had to put finger nail polish on to pretend to be a woman. It’s Halloween night and she’s in costume. It’s darn cold! She’s going to go door to door for Halloween.
