Performance: November, 2002
Hillcrest Juvenile Hall, San Mateo


Time:Its winter, and dusk settled in.
Place:The blanket of night circles the stars, and the company of fireflies crowd the hillside, the dandylion trail I’ll sit beside, as the light from the fire bounce and twinkle upon the petals, the dandylions could never hide.
At Rise:Amor the Seasonal Change and Angel Face Midnight Moon, can see the stillness in a praire night as the moon shines bright and makes it feel right. They can feel a wintery coolness that leaves them with a chill they feel the warmth of a midnight moon, sitting on top of a hill. They feel love when it’s real.

 



Angel-
face:

Hi Amor how are you tonight?

Amor:

Oh yea, what do you mean how are you tonight, you said you’d never lie, you lied, didn’t you, RIGHT!

Angel-
face:
Whats gotten into you. I thought you wanted to chill like the wind and hold each other all night.
Amor:

Looke hear, sweetheart, your mama Aurelia, the angel told me everything.

Angel-
face:

Woh, woh, hey everything, what do you mean everything?

Amor: Your mother told me about the whole creating ruckus in the sky thing, the whole shooting stars game in 4 days! Babe you can get hurt you can blow yourself up in the blanket of night. How can you go behind my back like that, just leave get out of my sight.
(She turns around and begins to cry)
Angel-
face:
I was gonna tell you Amor don’t walk away from me and please don’t cry, you know how I feel about crying.
Amor:

Don’t cry? Don’t cry! What do you mean don’t cry. I used to think crazy like you, remember when I used wind in a snow storm and a blizzard came about, homes were torn down folks died, and remember when the sheep froze, I had to wake up my sister the sun, to dry the ice.

Angel-
face:
Yea that was the biggest year of your life. Babe you are and will be a legacy. I want something to remind the orbited blanket of night that I am the ruler of the night light. 
Amor: But babe do you want to hurt other lives? Do you want to see your mother cry?
Angel-
face:
No.
Amor: Well then change your evil eye, and walk away with me in the sunlight.
(Four days later)
Time: It’s a wintery cool sunrise Amor, is in the fruit fields picking morning breakfast.(He walks to her)
Angel-
face:
Amor I love you. 
Amor: What are you so happy about?
Angel-
face:
Thought I would let you know I am not going.
Amor: Oh yea, why not
Angel-
face:
Because I wish not to corrupt the blanket tonight. I’d rather lay with you and hold you all night.
    The End.
