John—–Gloves on, Scarff to the wind, Jacket
I feel the power, I am that POWER!!!! And where is precision,
by golly I be that PRECISION; and now I have become the SPEED, (floors the accelerator) Ladies and gents we’re
two seconds from taking off from the ground.(Suddenly. looking to the side, a young woman is sitting next to him)
Whoahhh….Who the hell are you?
V—-You don’t want to know
John—-(Screeching the brakes) How did you get in
here? Who are you?……God dammit, …….I don;t care who you are, just get the hell out of here!!!!
You don’t want me to get out, because you’re…
your curiosity has gotten the better of you.
John—–(gives her a hard stare-starts auto moving)
you’re here because?
V—–A mutual friend,…… I happen to know someone that looks just like
you, Your mirror image, perhaps your other self; …..
Just a while ago we had a very interesting talk
(reaching into her bag, takes out a Mango)
Have you ever tasted an orange, I mean really tasted an orange,
what the sun should taste like?…..
My name is V by the way!
John——What kind of name is V…..What other
I have no other self
V——Do you know how solid, strong, hard the seed of
mango is? and yet you have to go through so much
sheer tropical, delectable, sweetness before you get to it.;
me some Acapulco Gold, said he was going to
his favorite swimming hole, the one populated by
girls he calls mythic nymphs.
John—-Mythic Nymphs,…You’re delusional,
getting tired of this,
I want you out, yesterday, (speeds the car)
V—–The smooth colorful skin is such
protection for the fruity, vulnerable,slurping morsels it hides…….
He told me exactly
what you would say, in fact, I can quote what you will say next:: “Look I don’t have time for
John——Look I don’t have time for this!
V——I think a mango is the most virile creation
of infinite mind, It is always there,
sweet, unassuming, free to touch, to caress, to the point, and at its core impenetrable,
a rock has nothing on
John, Whyu are you telling me this?
V—-you are in a
self made movie, it is not your fault, merely the programing that brought you up , and this vehicle is part of
that cinema, ……..that is what he told me.
John——How come this guy knows so much about me,Have
I ever met him?
V——Let me sound brutal for a moment , He is conscious you’re not!
John——If I let you tell me about this other self,
will you go away?
V—- He is beyond your movie, (reaches again ito her bag)
Oh, look what I found, Acapulco
Gold n the form of a joint,
IIsn’t this wonderful?
John—–Put that away
impresified, you are afraid of a little joint,
but you’re not afraid to travel 150 miles per hour.
John—– I’m not afraid of pot, I just don’t
need some right now.
V——–(Puts the peeled mango between John’s legs. tickles him)….Oh
I’m sorry, the devil made me do it!)
John—-You’re weird, are you sure we’re
not in the twilingt zone?
V——He is very curious about l COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS.
John—–Cosmic consciousness, maybe your from
different galaxy, some kind of new age guru?
V—-You and him;, very differnt, you keep repeating
yourself in your movie he has no need to..
John—–I’m driving a million dollar automobile,
and you are calling me a looser?
V—-There is nothing wrong with your Lambo, but what
is not called auto it is called pretention
John: this is a Lamborghini, Italian made, world class
precision, speed and power,
V—-Oh forgive me, for a moment I thought you were those things,
John—–This guy must be terrified of automobiles,
have some awful accident as a baby or something?
V——-Your auto doesn’ frighten him, YOU DO;
time you floor the accelerator,he feels energy sucked out of him. :Your auto does the final dreaming
John——- Automobiles dream?…..Explain dreaming?
dreams make impossible connections, and think nothing of it, travel continents countries, cities, galaxies
in less than a nano second. Can your Lambo do that?On the other side of the page, once your sacramental Lambo goes,
you go… you become, shadow.
John—–I would check out that offensive nature of
now I am a shadow?
V——For once, really listen to me, I mean really:
The final statement,
the ultimate thought of soul is indelible,
John—–This guy sonds like a handfull.
immense and majestic climate of fragil being
disses everithing else as being one dimensional shadows
molded in paper
John—-Why doesn’t he comfront me himself?
identity has been stolen, abducted, hyjacked….
Only thing left to you is………….. pretention!
John—–I”m quite satisffied in my space; I’m
content the way I be. Now you’re the one dreaming if you expect change from me!
V—-You’re a suit
of armor that has been split in two, and guess what we found inside NOTHING! …..
What used to be there had
gone bye bye.
John—-Even if it makes me the heavy in YOUR DREAM,
baby is who I am.
V—–You’re not a bad guy John…. your Lambo is kinda cute,
crazy wonderful experience , something to tell your grandchildren about, (Takes the mango starts devouring it.)…….
John—–Why didn’t you tell me you were hungry
, we can stop.
V——-This mango probably has the most awsome backbone in creation, in fact it is all backbone;
that is why such deliciousness surrounds it. (Mango juice all over the place)
John—–I make no pretention of who I am, You get
just what you see.
V——Are we missing the point.
He gets locked in; his little toy has become more
important than he!
John—–Tell me the truth wouldn’t you like
to wake up tomorrow and see this baby in your driveway?
V—-Sure I would, what would happen thought if I don’t
drive it; and it drives me?.Tell me about your wonderful baby, are you hip to exoskeletons?
John—–Isn’t that like a protective cover insects
have, instead of a backbone?
V—–I rest my case.
John—–That’s wonderfull, now use your phychic
self and hear this !!…THAT’S THE WAY I WANT IT !!!!!……
V——-Have you ever heard
of someone overdosing on pot?
John—-No, so what, what does that have to do with anything?
what’s the problem, what’s the paranoia
behind grass?(Offers him her roach)
John—-I don’t smoke,
mangos can never be catagorized
they are part of what IS, they follow the IS like the rest of creation,does;
motivated by the waves of your imagination,
Jonh—-ILet me put words in your mouth, Cosmic
V——Vulnerable pretention,seeks out illusive protection only to find hs naked predictability.
John:—— Some women I know like men that are predictable.
not confuse predictability with self knowledge.
Predictability hides in paper mache masks, he is here because he
is not all there.
John—Cosmic mind rules, Is that what you Gurus call
COINSCIOUSNESS?( Gives her a hard stare, takes the joint)
V——You know what
he,. HE,…….THAT UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY OF A FORGOTTEN SELF thinks of you?…..what it is he
really fears? Despair is a lack of communication; no direct line to other side of SELF;……..He
fears the price of VANITY.
John—-Tell me again what is wrong with predictability:?
mean predictability, ends up trashing itself, taking you and your anassuming baby Lambo into the Junk Yard.
John——(sarcastically) This Lamborghini is only paper
mache isn’t it?
And I have had this conversation with you before….
V—-My name is V
John—–You’re not really here are you?…..I’m
the one delusional,
a tidalwave has inundated my imaginings, and I am here wondering what drowning is like?
see no separation between you and your auto, none with the road, take in what you have taken in.
Look at the
scenery you’re driving through as being inside of you.
dissapear into me; dissapear into another definition
of who you are, become greater than you; see yourself, really see.
John——You’re not really here are you….not
here….. Your mame is (pause)……. Vanity!
(breathing Hard looks at his hands)
Prespiring hyperthermic sweat (breathes)
Heart not too well either (breathes deeply)
for a landing
Final statement, the ultimate thought of soul is indelible; cannot be errased.
