Overheard at 192 East Walton

192 – Cabaret (2020). Acrylic on wood. Artwork and text copyright Danny Grosso.

Counter-clockwise, from bottom left:

“The game is this: I’m still Roy, and that makes you the dauphin…”

**********

“Roy is so dramatic when he’s dressed up. So tell me Sleepy darling, does that mean you are an underboss, or lieutenant, or something?”

**********

“My dear, as I am an anglophile, and an avid viewer of really old movies, I prefer leftenant, If you don’t mind…”

**********

Silently, to herself: “I look great tonight, and I should; I spent all my extra money on this get-up; so why am I flitting about, three inches above the floor here, all alone? I should be home, but…the music, the food, the beautiful people… sometimes I just love this place.”

**********

Silently, to himself: “This section is so busy, so why am I alone? I should go home but, the customers, the kitchen, my rent…sometimes I just hate this place.”

**********

“Yer crowding me Louie, whaddaya want?”

**********

“I know we’re supposed to make Roy go bye bye tonight, but wouldn’t you rather kick that until tomorrow and romance that lonely beauty instead? I happen to know that she’s short of rent money and youz are holding heavy this week; and I mean you can’t take your eyes off of her – am I wrong?”
