Voyage AmNoct


 

HELEN:

I used to dream there was another woman
Living in the empty space inside me.
She'd laugh, and cry, and dance, and lose her temper.

She loved life in a way that terrified me.

But I always woke to face the morning
Blinking hard and swallowing a scream --
Until the morning Perry lay beside me
And then the waking up became the dream.

THE PLOT:

BARBIE: This is Barbie Dollinsky --
GQ: -- And GQ Mann --
BARBIE: And we’ve got Breaking News about embattled presidential frontrunner Senator Ethan Bocker. 
GQ: The conservative Senator is hoping to draw attention away from rumors racing across the internet about his relationship with Claire Prescott, his press secretary --
BARBIE: Former relationship with his former press secretary. 
GQ: She’s been "reassigned".
BARBIE: What do you call someone who’s unfaithful to both his wife and mistress?
GQ: A politician?
 
 
 
BARBIE: According to Drudge, it isn’t only the “family values” Senator who’s been playing hooky from his marriage vows. Rumor has it that his wife Helen has been acting out Lady Chatterley with the gardener, Perry something.
GQ: Kinky. Heck of an example to be setting for their teenage son, Michael. Who (I read on Muckraker.com) has been filling in for Dad with the former press secretary.
BARBIE: My sources tell me Michael’s truly in love with Claire Prescott. 
GQ: (Surprised, a little jealous) You have sources?
BARBIE: They also tell me Claire’s truly in love with Michael’s father, the Senator. 
GQ: True love, it’s wonderful.

 

 

ETHAN:

One night...
It's the proven way
Get a little love,
Get enough to get you through the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CLAIRE:

I'm sorry for you,
You waited so long
For one special woman
And I turned out to be all wrong.

MICHAEL:

You are the single passion in my life
The only reason I can find
The one excuse that I can make
For living.

 


 

In the garden, lying with you
Were there laws?  I don't remember.
Were there others once upon a time?
I think there may have been others
Once upon a time.
But I don't remember...
Who could they have been?
