Shiner & Loki: The Silver Stream Star People

(waves wand)

Baldor, put down your sword

Fool….

(caustic penetrating laughter)

(serpent smile)

Brother

Shiner

Haven’t seen you in a while

(pauses, smiles)

What happened?

(looks)

Lonely one

Did you lose your apples again?

Woooo!

What happens to you down in hel boy?

Did they — get at your ass?

(whip cracks)

Well in fact no, as you know

Loki, betrayer of kind

Nothing really happens to me

Still I had my up and downs

But, I made a few friends

I brought them back with me

Just for you!

(wicked)

Hahahahaha, how’s you do that lucky you?

I talked with them, I offered them a home

Friendship, freedom

Their fair share of all our dreams

Or to find their destiny where they might

As it should be

(wretches)

Well!

I’ll see you later brother, I got….

Something cooking!

Can you smell it?

(disappears)

Baldor looks down at his feet

A steaming pile of shit soft serve style in a Dairy Queen cup

A little silver plastic crown on the top says simply

“Momma’s Boy Welcome Home Fucker!”

(laughs heartily)

Man, he’s so screwed

Down

Yo, let’s go the dispo

Next stop

Paradise Way

(enters slip ship stream)

Hand out

Gazing

Lights

Music

Space

Push…. the button
nothing

Engage forward drive

Anytime, anyplace

Nice….

Why

What is a

Fanatic?

One who sees truth without compassion

It’s really just a lie

They made up

Like all the others

Right?

Humorless

Boneless

Sadistic

They do not believe

They devour the weak

As a sacrifice to their fear ghosts

And vanity

Never mind

They are nothing

Just phantoms of the fog

Watch

How nothing….

Happens to them

All is us All

We welcome

You

One & many

Hail Farewell

Peace

From Now

I will only say this….

Be very careful

Of what you sign

Your name to

Remember….

The Devil, so to speak

Needs your name, in writing….

And he will get it

Anyway he can

Take Care

The Fading: Our Glass Days Shatter

I don’t want to see only the appearance

I am starving

I love them

God, let me feel them

Let me see them

Truly

I love

Their sound

The Way

They look —- at you

They care for us

She made her body our home

Imagine it

So, we must return the gift

Calm yourself beast

Lay down

If you wish

To feel her

To understand, your home

Yourself

We are growing

As we recede

An hourglass

Of shifting sands

“He doesn’t, know…. where he is going, so he gets there quickly too late”

We call this —- The Hole

Bottomless

No… no

It’s not a bar, not by far

Far, far…. And Away

I don’t think anything

Not really….

I’m just watching and listening, trying to be

I do see the people, I know them

I know this….

So I don’t need to know anything else

It is already more than most

They are more fun than us, than me

Don’t be…. Fooled

Like in my dreams….

Always late, for school

Suh Such & Such

Unphysical

What can be done?

Nothing.

You can’t do anything, there is nothing to kill

In one sense, they are not even really here

Sir….

They’ll just move it a little and you won’t even know what happened…..

Analysis?

Well….. that’s hard for us to say at this time, Sir….

Why?

All of our emissaries come back with glowing reports

What do they say?

No Sir…..

The reports are glowing. The emissaries drop them off, laugh, and walk away….

Yes… but what do they say?

No Sir!

(huffs)

Well…. what did he say?

Fugetta bout it….

(chin on hand)

Huh…….

Static: Rings & Waves

Static…..

Rings….

We had to close, the ride

Which one?

The tube…..

Which one?

The big one in the jungle

Sheesh…..

What happened?

He wanted to go on again right after

(laughter & static)

Why?

We think he wanted to show off —- for his wife….

Oh, herrrrr….

(clicks, whirs)

He would have come right back through (breaks)

Again (laughter)

Well…. Ya that’s why we closed it!

(slide whistle yodel)

I knowwwww….

Keep an eye out….

(hand out)

One & many!

(pointer finger out, distantly)

Hail & Farewell…

Vacation 1: By Sunset 1989 (draft)

Puerto Rico, in the outer suburbs

Just near where the mountains and the jungle nearly reach the ocean

A new teenager walks along the beach from the hotel with whitewashed villas in the hills behind

He’s sporting a yellow polo golf shirt and some swim trunks….

~Flip flops~

No shades

He walks for what seems like a good ways, it’s a little foggy from a light rain

The palm trees start to thin a little to his side, but the low mist hangs around

small bright spots appear when a small beam breaks through, the shadows are Jupiter atmospheric in the shady heat

He comes to a little beach clearing and some streets, he walks down one

The streets are nearly perfect squares. It’s very quiet, very few people seem to be around.

After just a few blocks he comes to a bar open to the street, he walks in….

waves

Hola…..

nods

Rum & Coke?

pours a glass

hands over

It’s just rum…..

no response

laughs lightly

How much, que dinero?

holds out hand

5 dollars?

no response

Ok….

hands over a 10

Please…. keep the change

drinks rum

it’s a fairly large glass

for a new teenager

Hey…. Got a smoke?

hands over a few Marlboro Reds

Oh…. thanks

smokes

Ok…. well

Cerveza?

hands over beer

Thank you…..

sometime later

Alright! Thank you…..

Reasalllly gewdzz tsalkking uj

Bye!

“walking” along

a Catholic schoolgirl on the corner makes a very strange face at him

a man passing by breathes really heavy walking by

It’s fairly hot, maybe 100 degrees or so….

Clear & Sunny

as he goes by a open top street garbage can he puts his head over the hole and vomits into it

dazed he looks up and sees the Catholic schoolgirl pointing at him and speaking with a very hard expression for one unwrinkled

a man taps him on the shoulder, as a street dog barks he wakes up a little

“Hey, you shouldn’t be here…. You could get hurt, especially in your condition”

ehhhh, I did, jk I’m thirsty

“Come with me, I’ll take you to the beach and you follow it back to your hotel before sunset”

“Ok?”

Ya

He walked….

Home in the Sunset

Somehow we found him again the next day, or maybe the next

This one

escapes me

Elsewhere ATM: Just, Give That A Moment

There is that side; I don’t necessarily like it, but I don’t hate it, either….

What do you do it?

Seems like a weird question….

Yes — I think, so….

K, so….

I look at it.

sips

What does it do?

It looks back….

Does anything happen?

It looks at you.

I mean anything, more?

~Depends~

On what?

What does everything depend on?

What?

Nothing.

How so?

There is nothing —- else….

Elsewhat?

~Elsewhere~

How does that help you?

Like nothing else can….

Souls ain’t cold u see, nowhere is warm

Where is it?

You can see it….

How?

Not how…..

“Riddles In The Dark”

You are not asking why…..

You want to find who’s responsible…..

I’ll ask you, since you have a reason —- why?

Hmm?

What will, you do?

God knows….

Anyway, you know —- why…..

What do you have —- planned?

Keep in mind, whatever you do…..

Your children & their children, if we are so lucky….

Will, want to know

Why?

You will, leave them with no choice —- but to ask, why?

Will we —- Lie?

Hell, is nothing more than madness…..

Madness

It is made, of lies….

Lies hurt this, they damage your reality, they take it away…..

Stop, there is nothing to lie about

You are loved

Put your hands up!

This is another one of our signs

Yes, it’s a bad joke….

Of course

Why should I?

For the sake of morality?

No.

We don’t need a bunch of vengeful “perfect” people who never do anything “wrong” Yuck!

Because I’ll get some reward?

No.

We won’t even go there…… (been there already)

Because it’s the right thing to do? Well…. No

But ya, it is…..

Because it feels good? Almost, But…. No

Mmm, don’t it?

Is there a reason?

Not really…..

(prescient laughter)

Well, why then?

I won’t tell you why….

(purse lips)

What will you tell me?

They are one, of you……

Can you explain further?

No.

What is there to say?

That’s what I thought….

What?

Nothing.

When it is time….

You won’t have to try, it’ll just happen….

(like death, or life)

Often I understand things after I’ve done them, or when I’ve remembered them…..

This is not~doing.

What?

Nothing.

Are you mad?

About what, you?

laughter

No, I mean the world can’t be like that….

Like what?

Nothing.

But, you don’t know what nothing is….

What are you talking about, nothing isn’t nothing….

Yes, that’s right!

looks

Nothing comes from nothing…..

So they say, but what they forgot to tell you is the something is in the coming.

How’s that?

Nothing is aware.

Of what?

You.

And?

Nothing comes of it….

laughter

Seems stark….

It is~not (snowing)

Beautiful, no?

Very funny, but really how is it is not?

There is —- one other…..

Who’s that?
