Verses from the Limousin………

Stuck ~ Stuck in a bar

Smokey bar few people all men excepting one woman smoke so fulsome the sun glinting through the window is blue. Only movement is the smoke music R Newman gotta roll with the punches

First conversation………
Have you ever thought how stuck we are?
No. I’ll speak only of myself.
I’m stuck ~ not you.

Head bowed this man seems to speak to himself……….no one else sits near him…he has some whiskey on the bar in front of him. He lifts his head and singles out someone…..

Now you ~ you’ll be one of those fresh fine
And dandy, good-looking, cool
And fresh-faced men.
Not like me
.

No one moves or smiles or engages. He continues……

Yes I’m talking to you ~ about you.
Why don’t you come over here
Where I can see you for what
You are.

Backs stiffen blue smoke shifts disturbed by the bulging air
A young man willing to placate, moves in his direction…………..

That’s better ~ let me just adjust
My glasses.
There.
Want a drink fella?…….
Don’t want to drink with me?
Got a drink already?
Well , I’m empty.

The barman acquainted with these kinds of circumstances fills his glass.

Thanks
That’s just great. Now what could be better
Two buddies drinking, thinking,
Conversationalists ~ all friendly like.

The blue smoke swirls and gathers like a storm

Don’t talk too much do you.
Where you going now? I’ve just got started.
Girl to see, famly to visit?
Oh well. Good to see you.
Thanks for the drink fella
Bye………

Second Conversation

Have you ever thought how stuck we are?
No. I’ll speak only of myself.
I’m stuck ~ not you.

Now you ~ you’ll be one of those fresh fine
And dandy, good-looking, cool
And fresh-faced men.
Not like me.

The barman can be seen in the back of the bar taking the top off a bourbon bottle in preparation ………………………for the next conversation.
