Why does anyone do anything? In that country where men broke stones for pennies each day, building mansions over gleaming streets, Pink Floyd's "Money," echoed against the bathroom's flesh tiles, inch squares marching from floor to walls to ceiling, the box room entirely open, no curtains, no stalls, as water from the big roof tank splashed over her naked body, over everything, late afternoon rainbow sheets draining soot and dust and sweat, soap and fret and unrequited desires, fear and fairytales and Herbal Essence -- all the ingredients of 70s teenage angst -- into a hole in the floor and out to the dry world. "Money," she sang, "get away," as if her family didn't have any, as if she wasn't a white princess up in her glittering, wet tower, flushing precious water to the hungry streets, letting it roll over her untouched body like a thousand peso coins, like invented grief.
Suggested soundtrack: Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.
