Man sits up in his bed, his wrapped head close to the wall. Bed has drapes at either end, and clothes and slippers tossed around. Conversation under drawing seems to be between the man and the woman (voisine) who lives in the neighboring apartment, with the man opening the conversation: "Goodnight, neighbor!" "Goodnight, neighbor!" "Everything's going all right, neighbor?" "Yes, and for you, neighbor?" "What did you say, neighbor?" "What?" "I love you always, neighbor!" "Goodnight, neighbor!" "Goodnight, neighbor!" he closes. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/05/94)
