From Pierre and The House Of O'Dwyer

Performance: Away from the heart

On stage a variety of dogs and cats
and other pets if possible are in cages
in a row near the front of the stage
each has a toy musical instrument in the cage with them
and a small microphone on a stand is positioned
at the front of each cage

behind them sits the performer on a stool in a
dark floor length robe
spot lit like the animals
beside him is a stand on which lies a pot of Moisturiser

hair scraped back he should take the cream and apply
it to his face and smooth it over his skin
he may grin manically as he does this
periodically breaking into song
over the noise of the animals and the instruments
Away from the heart ...away from the heart...
He sings as he continues to smooth cream into his face...
