A trapeze artist, a snowy street, a fashion runway, a passing woman, a crowd of onlookers. With these and other overlapping, hazy images, there is a metaphorical outpouring of nostalgia, dreaminess, love. This black-and-white tone poem, accompanied primarily by solo piano, is a strange but affecting hallucination.
