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.
These people are tiresome
and interesting all at once.
I shall write a story about them.
