What's it going to be then, eh?

Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

Long before there was a plot,
long before Johanna Wheeler & Lilly Covington
dove head first into their simmering summer
on Lake Allamuchy, New Jersey,

there was a very real, very deserted tree house
in Massachusetts.
And there were two very real friends & next door neighbors
who confiscated it

for commiseration, conversation & cahoots.

All it took was my imagination to move it...
to the empty meadow

with the commanding view,

Behind Johanna's "cottage"

and Lilly's bungalow.

What's it going to be then, eh?

Commiseration, conversation & cahoots

The Chick Palace

Three Dilemmas, Two Friends, One Deserted Tree House
