I am like a waiter who has been given a special identity. At this time, I may be a stranger, perhaps a maker of taste and emotion, maybe a peeper next door, maybe just a recorder using camera to invade the others. The young flesh came in and out. Our communication was limited to the narration of the shutter sound and the euphemistic dialogue. This is a colorful room filled with invisible desires and slow laziness. The body appears to be still, or just a dream, because it is not a strong oppressive relationship.
