Catwalk

1 minute read

In my dream, the three men in high heels enter the catwalk side by side. They’re terrified but try to pretend otherwise, their faces a neutral expression that makes them look like plastic mannequins.

The catwalk grows narrower as they advance, fueling the frenzy of the maggots. The first man is hit with acid, loses his balance and falls off the stage. Screaming with his lungs exposed, he is quickly devoured by a giant centipede. The others carry on, trying to balance themselves on the platform.
