[James says goodbye to Carl. Carl looks to her and she turns from him. Res down Carl]

[ James watches with deep sadness, January is placing a coat on a sleeping boy in the
back of a car.]
Dream Song Sequence #9
The Boy in the Car

There is a boy
in the back seat of the car
The whine of the transmission
has put him to sleep

I stop the car and cover him with my coat
He starts to say something
I lightly touch his lips
and tell him shush

I sing an old song
as we sail down the road
When the boy wakes
I find that he knows every word

[Res down January, lights dim, stage dark, lights up, Res up James Troubadour on the
stage with a projector system in place]
{James Troubadour}
January Eileen VanMora was one of the most influential musical composers of
all time. She is often considered on par with Amere Chygon, Miles Davis, the Beatles,
Wagner, Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart and Ton Ru. There is creditable evidence that her
music was a pivotal inspirational for more than a few of the Second Renaissance
romantic writers and philosophers . . .

[Turn off the lights and go home]
