Spot On

If I could hide anywhere in the world, I would hide in Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirror Room.
I would be 12 years old and I would wear a red and white spotty leotard so that I could blend in to my surroundngs.
I would leave my face exposed and paint my lips green, just in case I got lost. Then my dad could find me.
I would not take my minx cat with me. He would burst all those balloons with his sharp claws.
