Title: “A Story of Baby Doll”
Synopsis: When Baby Doll looks into the mirror at morning, before having shaved, it’s certainly a painful experience. But perhaps not in exactly the way you might imagine.The immediate reaction he gets from the reflection is a feeling of very strong disassociation, accompanied by a kind of shock, confusion, or mental jarring. Actually, the shock is what he first notice at age eleven.
Doll has a strong, gut-level sensation that whoever is behind the mirror is not real. This feels just as wrong and surreal as it would feel if someone played a trick on you, and replaced the bathroom mirror with a pane of glass with a pantomime behind it pretending to be you. his reflection in the morning feels like a mirage, feels alien, unreal, and very distant. It causes his eyes not to be able to focus; taking refuge in his thoughts rather than truly living.
Baby Doll experienced this all the time in her life, More so now than ever.
