"I am Madame Polly - former tablecloth from a quiet man's living room, current handbag. The living room was in a small house, in the countryside, right on the edge of the forest. The shadows of the spruce trees dripped as the sun set in the living room, and a resident of the house, a retired farmer, lit the ceiling light. Every night, for all those years and decades.
Until that day came.
A woman entered the house. I was and am sincerely happy for them, even though I received cold exit passes as soon as that woman entered the house. And in good spirits, I set off on new adventures in a plastic bag with living room curtains and cushions. ”
