Initiation Rite

Nervous but excited, I have come to see a performance artist who is known to effect profound changes in mens' lives. He picks me out from the audience and takes me inside a black gypsy cabin. "You will be electrocuted here like the man in this video," he says. I begin to feel uneasy. Who is this guy? Will I be ok? I am always so careful in life. His face becomes demonic and he laughs, "How sweet! Too late to go back now. I will parade you naked through the streets of Carrick - everyone will know who you really are."
I am terrified and yet I still trust this man.
