    Act 2

    Kamala is first down stairs. She finds Joe on the couch with the paper and a cup of coffee in front of him. He's got his mask on and a pair of dark goggles.
    Kamala.... Morning Joe, I need mine, I'll be out in a minute.
    John has been descending the staircase
    John. ... Good morning sir.
    Brennan senses the unresponsive Joe as a concern and registers the unanswered salute of good day. He also gets a cup of coffee.
    John.... Is Joe okay?
    Kamala... How the hell would I know? He hasn't said a word to me since I got here. He's been talking to Susan Rice.
    John.... Look...
    Kamala.... Yeah, through the finish line.
    I'll be okay, but this is worse than I thought.
    John... Let's go plan a party.
    They gather about Joe.
    They don't start conversation, instead are wanting for Joe to initiate the game plan
    Joe hasn't moved during any interaction so far, just sitting with his cooling coffee, mask and dark goggles.
    Kamala and John look at each other. John signals she sit next to him and start somewhere. John keeps a sharp eye, but the situation is slowing developing in his mind.
    Kamala is trying to get Joe's attention, and John gets it
    John.... Kamala, I don't think Joe hears you.
    Kamala.... John, the vice president has been very attentive
    John a little louder, sterner, nervous.... I don't think he hears you, or me
    Kamala... Joe? Joe? Joe?
    Joe is dead
    John... Damn
    Kamala.... What the hell
    John.... Calm. Calm and think
    John walks behind the couch
    Kamala is sitting and addressing the dead body of joe.
    John drops something that rolls under the sofa
    James Comey comes striding in
    James...Joe, you haven't returned.... Oh..
    John can't reach the fallen something and exclaims... Come on man
    James... I'm sorry, sorry, didn't know you were working with the VP candidate.... Remember what we discussed. I'll leave and catch up later. Nobody get up, I'll see myself out. Don't forget Joe. Nice seeing you Kamala.
    Comey leaves
    Kamala is still stunned and John was just coming up from behind the couch.
    John...what happened
    Kamala....what the hell do we do now
    John... He didn't know he was dead
    Kamala... I didn't know he was dead. When you said come on man, my heart stopped, I thought it was him. Comey had no idea.
    John.... hmmnnm, maybe no one needs to know.
    Kamala... Wait a sec, are you crazy.
    John... We don't have that far to go, and no one is expecting much, we just need to keep him in the basement and no one would know the difference.
    End act 2

    Act 3
    Lots of background and build up.
    Elizabeth Warren has gotten wind of the meeting between Biden and Harris.
    She's motoring to site and scheming ways to knock Kamala out of the race.
    Clapper and a Chinese ambassador are setting up shop just around the corner to make sure all goes as planned.
    The never Trumper Lincoln project sets up house in a log cabin planning to pass secret Republican plans to team Biden.
    A gaggle of reporters are scurrying all over everything trying to get anything with a central figure of Jim Acosta running around in a TV crew van with a picture of George Clooney in a prominent place.
    Barrack Obama getting a tan somewhere
    Michelle leading an effort to feed the poor with organic brussal sprouts.
    Hillary leading a rag tag group of Clintonites over a mountain that might lead to the convergence of all the others.
    Peter stroyck and Lisa Page are dressed as tourists sitting on a beach two hundred yards apart under umbrellas and texting each other.
    John podesta is a corner street cryer calling for the end of days.

    Donnie wins my state implodes
    Joey wins the current sitting White House implodes

    I’m screwed coming or going. Never thought I’d been stocking up in anticipation of anything other than a peaceful transition of power. Things you take for granted until their gone.

    Help us OLarry one Hoganie you’re our only hope.

    Need to star stocking up on chips. Number nine getting hard to find.

    Big argument with my best and true friend.
    He doesn't go hard for obvious reasons, he's a father of a young daughter that needs the right kind of direction.
    She is right, but the fight is with the administration, those that will make you, make or break..and she has sand.
    How do make hard?
    It was once the work, an idea of outer body to the physical that grew your body hard
    You walk, you think, you drink, you eat, you sleep, you wake up, you see, you accept, you enjoy, you raise, you love....
    You love

    I might add.
    Did you know we have teachers here,?
    Yes, we have teachers.
    The criminality of teachers in our republic must be addressed.
    Many should be sent to prison, some executed
    This is the starting point.
    This is the starting point
    You wanna go all out?
    Start with every trashy teacher in our country and take off their head.
    I see you
    Do you see me?

    We are winning
    Thank God
    We are winning
    I got a little sad for a minute thinking the ugly was spreading faster then the clean up, but not so.
    We are winning.

    It changes all the time.
    Even a minute changes everything.
    The stonecrusher and I planted a garden. Mostly to keep us busy during the lockdown.
    We planted just the right stuff to add to anything we'd eat, staying safe inside our walls from all monsters.
    Patrick's garden has grown into a wild, fussy mess.
    I work a little at the weeds, talk as much as I can to a clamoring noise, but I insist on a little time to make money.

    The stonecrusher went over the wall almost two months ago.
    My heart sinks to every word.
    I come back to the garden to hysterical noise and water, and feed, and talk, and be with them for a moment.
    They need help too.
    Most places are still closed, the loneliness grows
    Just a quiet place alone.

    Behind the garden, the sun plays plenty.
    I can see the sun play.
    On every leaf, on every fruit, on everything.... The sun plays.
    I bring out brushes, I bring out paint
    This is a picture
    Then he hits you
    That picture has turned to the glory of God.
    In one instance.
    And to never be captured
    To remain in mind
    To ask

    Good for you tincup—living in the moment with Patrick. You have a good imaginative memory and I’ll bet you’ll vividly remember Patrick in his messy garden, with the dancing sunlight bouncing off of leaves, grasses, and Patrick’s dear face. I am so happy for you enjoying your young son.

    You sweet thing.
    I've always liked you.
    I haven't seen my son in three weeks.
    I am dying alone and only have memories.
    I talked to my daughter today. For over an hour I wanted some idea of educational advice and got noise.
    Just noise.
    I know what I gotta do, I just need to do it
    I'm just kinda scared.

    Those are very oblique thoughts...

    They are not meant to be.
    Lizzie and Patrick are in Nevada. I've been working out of California.
    The move was necessary and has big upside, but the time away has hurt me.
    Truth
    I try to be romantic in moment, but certainly you see I fail.
    Its all good.
  • tincuptincup Member
    Whoo would understand.
  • KMMKMM Member
    I forgot about the move. I know you're a Californian of your own ilk, so I would guess the change is probably desettling for you. You are romantic in the moment, but I guess that moment was a few weeks ago. I hope you'll join your family soon. You miss your friend who.
  • tincuptincup Member
    Isn't that funny.
    You do get shit right.
    I've a foot here, and a foot there.
    I don't think I could leave this place.. I've a place I park and watch the ocean breath.
    The waves build and crash, build and crash
    I've never been far from the beginning, never far from the end.
    I'm having a hard time letting go.
