Die Antilope


Die Antilope opens to small talk at a company party as the employees await their boss. The boss duly appears and proceeds to elevate the vapidity of the previous conversations into an egocentric speech of his own until his nose starts to bleed. At this point, a cocky fellow named Victor takes up his speech and completely deconstructs it, pronouncing words that would seem to be made-up but are actually names of antelope species. The thoroughly intoxicated Victor jumps out the window and plunges into a night of grotesque non-communication, following which he suddenly finds himself back at the party. Dream, reality, or merely the result of consummate miscommunication?
