PLAY #237: RAGNAROK (AUGUST 13)

Europe, 2010.

PASSED-BY #1 & #2 look up at the sky.

Just visible: a cloud of dark ash.

 

PASSED-BY #1

Still the stand-still?

 

PASSED-BY #2

Still.

 

PASSED-BY #1

Quiet. Without the sky full.

 

PASSED-BY #2

Yeah.

 

They look up at the ash.

 

PASSED-BY #1

Think it’s revenge?

 

PASSED-BY #2

Huh?

 

PASSED-BY #1

For Copenhagen. Our inability to stop. Like this volcano is putting us in our place.

 

PASSED-BY #2

I don’t think volcanoes are aware of us. Or Copenhagen. I mean, this volcano has all the publicity it needs: not like Copenhagen would give it much more.

 

PASSED-BY #1

No.

They look up at the ash.

 

PASSED-BY #2

Not revenge. Not a message. Just…

 

PASSED-BY #1

Ash.

 

PASSED-BY #2

Just ash, yes.

 

They look up at the sky.
