"Fashion icon, Jasmine Dupont (nee Jablonski), died as she had lived, in dramatic style. It was reported Mrs. Dupont tripped on a hand-painted silk caftan and fell down a marble staircase. On the day of her passing, Mrs. Dupont was quoted as saying "American women are oinkers. British woman should be kenneled. And the French...don't get me started." Mrs. Dupont's response from the certain backlash will be missed. Adieu ma douce."
The year she stopped eating and working and talking, she devolved, draping cloth over mirrors, not brushing her teeth. She went from Emily Dickinson to Sylvia Plath to Anne Sexton, reading their work over and over, copying their words. A day came. She reached for a pencil... cracked egg, hot griddle. Her first poem filled two pages. She now eats oatmeal and wanton soup from the Chinese restaurant.
