CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN FRIENDS
We see two elegantly dressed elderly citizens sitting in an austere black lacquer room, with a barley set table. The room is lit with from surrounding candles, and overhead floodlights. A conversation ensues...
1: Mommy, who am I?
2: I have no idea, you silly, silly creature.
1: you dont remember at all?
2: well yes, how dreadful of me, not to. my husband's dead you know.
1: i'm dead as well
2: lets get past this, lets reminisce
1: after all, the past is where we flourish, as err John to say
1: by the way, did you know i found out god is dead?
2: good heavens
1: no, no heavens at all
2: what ever does that portend?
1: where's my Mommy?
2: I believe she's dead too
1: Ah yes, and naked in my nightmares
