    Astrid & Scooter-say hello

    Picture this—

    The characters are in a room, it is dark. They have just been aroused from sleep by a loud clap of thunder. The room is intermittently lit up with the flashes of lightening. Astrid is holding a kaleidoscope to her eye. Scooter mimics her but with a viewmaster.

    Astrid:
    I see fractured shards, Scooter.

    Scooter:
    Yes, reels of images almost

    Astrid:
    each turn
    black then fractured
    black then blue
    black then orange

    Scooter:
    a lemon yellow suburban nest
    click
    a Frank Lloyd Wright window
    click

    Astrid:
    is it—
    enveloped in blues and greens
    with orange edges and purple dots

    Scooter:
    smudgy? No, but sharply
    arranged in focused form

    Astrid:
    Well I would like to see nothing
    but these colors, assigning
    meaning is futile.
    Color is not domesticated

    Scooter:
    if I cross my eyes I can try it your way

    Astrid:
    Oh Scooter, go shopping for eye glasses then.
    Keep them permanently crossed.

    The lightening stops and they drift back to sleep.
