The bedroom. A Lichtenstein, a Hockney, a silk-screen of

Joanna by Andy Warhol. A Jeff Koons piece. Nicky and Joanna

words visible:
THE PHANTOM WHO -- A second line of type is

too small to be legible.


Nicky and Joanna are undressing after the fact, very slowly

and distractedly. Joanna stands by a chair near the window.

Nicky is on the other side of the bed and he alternates
