The Poster is quite serious. Of course I was drawn to it, as he resembles my husband. Incredibly handsome. I fell in love with him as a little girl. He grew up, changed a lot. I didn't recognise him. Then I fell in love with him all over again. THE VORTEX, my gorgeous, handsome husband. I love you. I have always loved you. I will forever love you. Isn't that what true love is.
Do you remember, cycling your bicycle down to Shannongarry, meeting me in the games room. Do you remember. I remember know. We were so tiny. I had the biggest crush on you. I actually persuaded mam to go to Sunday Mass in Midleton, we did. Later we bought some fish in the local Fish Shop. God I loved you. I was only 8.
The years passed. God I fall in love with you over and over again. As such I saw the poster for Vortex. I went to the shops as girls do. I was thinking to pick up some cups, you know. The sort, or rather brandy glasses and trays, proper Sunday man stuff. One of the girls helped me to get a few pieces. I arrived with my friend at the Gate Theatre. You already knew I was common. You did, don't lie. As such, I didn't realise how incredibly important the Gate Theatre is. I didn't realise how incredibly important a line up there was. You are right my dear husband. You couldn't take me anywhere. I arrived, in stone wash jeans, a top with my boobs hanging out. Jeans which were far too low. I know, you could never take me anywhere. I mortify you. Last night was no different. I didn't let you down. I mortified you. Dear husband, look was at THE VORTEX - The Gate Theatre.
I have companions now. I have too. I mortify you. As such you cannot bring me anywhere. So I have a few companions who accompany me to the theatre. My friend was out yesterday. I picked out my clothes with another friend. I cannot be trusted, not even to dress myself. You see, I am forever dressed for you, in that place again, our little sanctuary. THE VORTEX - Well it was made for you. I love you. I do think you should take a little trip to see it. For you would love it, if only for a moment. Oh just a little note, I have decided you know, to stop being so crazy, and for once in my life be a mother. Of course I have, because I love you. Just for a moment, I want that big bed back again, that we all used to lie in, all four us, mixed up, because that's what families do.
THE VORTEX-Dear Husband, it was made for you, why because we all love you.
THE VORTEX - Now Showing at The Gate Theatre - Dear Husband, I do mortify you, that's in Dublin Right ;) xxxxxxxx
