the chinese stripper we've come to see comes on-stage
under blue lights, silver glittering on her eyes and in her hair
and silver seems to be her theme because
her shoes and her long fingernails and shooting through her stockings:
it's all silver under blue and ultra-violet lights.
and the best part is that she isn't chinese at all, really;
it's a trick they do with make-up and wigs, with gesture and music.
and it's a really great trick. really.
