The illusion of happiness

This place tried. I’m sure it did. Someone thought it would make a good event space and even draped some tulle back there to make…well, I guess they made draped tulle. Anyway, things didn’t work out and now it just sits there, all broken windows and pigeons and faded dreams.

It was only an illusion. (Or, to quote the lettering on the barrel, an “ilusion.”)
