Les buveuses de café

Two elegant figures with a furious obsession for symmetry take their coffee amid whispers of agreeable truths in a living room of velveteen comfort.  Except… certain anomalies begin to slip into their comportment and the place itself is revealed to be something other than what it first seemed. As cracks appear in their insouciance:  their world divides in two, giving birth to a fashionable Venus who makes their coffee.

Is it their imagination that leads them to the most insidious of confusions?  Are they not themselves simply the dream of a sister who resembles them like some phantasm born of their desire for fusion?
