The biggest moth on the lamp-sheet was the White Witch, Thysania agrippina. One balcony is concealed by a white stucco veil with an oblong window, like that of a business envelope, looking in on the door. Doorbell repetend. Repetition as crescendo in Romantic writing. “Clam cup connection” (Gertrude Stein). “What’s it like inside your tambourine?” (Prince). This being the whole joke.
