Leo’s Entries

Dear diary,

There is this woman

married to a man, unhappily.

That woman is not me.

Then she meets dashing young man.

He’s in the army and races horses.

She even knows his mother socially.

No, this man is not me.

They share some acquaintances

and family – the woman’s brother,

his friend, a well-known princess socialite.

The woman’s brother has affairs.

The friend is deeply in love.

The well-known princess socialite functions

as the hostess and message carrier.


Dear diary,

These people are tiresome

and interesting all at once.


Dear diary,

I shall write a story about them.
