            SCENE

                                   (A coffee house with a couch and
                                   chairs.)

                                   (PERPLEXED and PATRON are seated on
                                   couch in mid-conversation.  FORLORN and
                                   HAPPY are seated with them, both
                                   reading NEWSPAPERS.) 

                                   PERPLEXED
            So that's it.  I think I'm finally done with it.  I'm just
            going to focus on poetry and plays.  I'm not talking politics
            anymore.

                                   PATRON
            That's awesome!  Not that you're not talking politics
            anymore, but that you're going to direct energies to creative
            stuff.  I can't wait to see some of your work.

                                   PERPLEXED
            Can we make a deal?

                                   PATRON
            What?

                                   PERPLEXED
            If you like it, you let me take you on a date?

                                   PATRON
            Now....  I already told you, I have a man in my life.

                                   PERPLEXED
            I know.  I can't help it.  You're just so attractive--

                                   PATRON
            You'll make me blush--

                                   PERPLEXED
            And you understand.  Nobody gets the political angle, but you
            do.

                                   (Beat.  She sips her coffee.)

                                   PERPLEXED (CONT'D)
            Well, maybe things will change--I mean if you're happy, I
            wouldn't want to disrupt that.  I just....  I just want you
            to know....

                                   PATRON
            Duly noted.
