[DeP's pouring dirt on the flames that have spontaneously ignited in the corner pot holding a plastic palm tree. Her sleeves are on fire but she doesn't appear concerned.]

Aww, Doomey. You know I'm always here even when I hang from the ceiling and hide like a bat. You're my hero...or hey! Slosh a little water on this mess, can you? We don't want things to get out of hand.

Smoke kills and all that. Yeah.

[doomey was busy thumbing in Prince's Now on the Bose, and then he was busy doing ankle twists, but then he noticed the flames, and he made that O face and side-stepped onto the tiles, uttering underbreaths of]

oh, shit.

[and]

good almighty stumbling burning Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryors.

[he grabs up the cat bowl filled with water and dumps it on the fires. the cat looks at him, miffed. doomey sets the cat bowl back on the floor beside DeP's desk. DeP's sleeves are smoking, but no longer aflame, and the palm tree is just slightly more droopy. doomey frowns, and he looks around and up, scanning for smoke detectors. he hates the sound of smoke detectors]

[i guess that's the point of smoke detectors]

okay.

[the Bose goes quiet. doomey walks to the cherrywood, leans against it, taps out a pall mall, swan vestas it, sucks in some sweet smoke]

dodged a bullet there, eh?

[Jesus has his palms pressed against the cherrywood's desktop, and he's looking over the maps, the areas Carol has drawn circles around with a fresh new crisp sharp Sharpie, red]

I think we might be in trouble here, cousin.

[Jesus grabs up his Java from the edge of the gigantoid marble ashtray and sucks some smoke into his cheeks, he whistles it mirrorballward]

Capital T.

We're surrounded. Won't be long before the deluge dries up.

[doomey smashes what's left of his pall mall into the bowl of the ashed and littered gigantoid triangular marble ashtray that sits upstage right on the cherrywood's desktop. he grabs up a fresh cap, examinines the first couple pages. Carol, sitting behind the cherrywood, digs into the bottom righthand drawer and grabs up and places four clean tumblers on the desktop, upstage. she twists her lipsticked lips, presses them tight, and she pours a few fingers into each tumbler. she blinks only once]

shit fuck.

[doomey tosses the capital on the desktop in front of Carol]

what do you make of that?

I can see the fires.

[doomey grabs up a tumbler]

god damn it, jesus. we're protected here.

[Carol grabs up two tumblers. she gets to her feet, and she walks a full tumbler of amber over to DeP's desk, sets it down in front of her. she lowers her head before DeP, like some sort of weird ritual, like respect, and then she returns to the cherrywood and she sits in the pilot's chair, her own tumbler held before her. she sets the amber down on the desktop, downstage left. she picks up the cap doomey plopped down on the desktop, she examines it. doomey sniffs the contents of his tumbler, his eyes roll]

good bottle.

[he gazes on the girl behind the desk]

help me with this. The Tinweed Man by Daniel White. tell me if it's good. seems a little-

[Jesus turns from the Porthole. He walks over to the cherrywood, slaps his palms on the desktop, and he glares at Carol]

You've researched the fires. We're in trouble, aren't we. Should we call an Uber?

[Carol jerks to her feet and shouts]

Would the two of you just back the fuck off.

[She lowers her head, shakes it. She glances up at Doomey]

The capital is good. Slightly gay, but good.

[She glances over at Jesus]

The world is slowly burning up. And yes, we might need an Uber.

[She sits in the pilot's chair, and she grabs up her tumbler]

[Jesus, his palms still on the cherrywood's desktop, stares into Carol's eyes]

I actually do not have the Uber App on my phone presently.

[He leans in]

But I do have an icecream shop on my phone. In case you're craving icecream.

[doomey shakes his head, scoots around till he has his back against the side of the cherrywood, gazing across the Floor at DeP's desk]

she can talk. i'll be a monkey's stepdad.

[something in his pocket bings. he reaches in and pulls out his phone, eyes the news alert. he closes his eyes, pockets the phone. he gets to his feet shakily]

but hey, before i forget, nidhi singh's The Reborn had been examined.

[he gets his balance, straightens his lapels, smooths them with the flats of his hands. he licks his lips, and he taps out a pall mall]

i just wanted to tell you guys that nidhi's cap did not touch the money, but i had to use the backsides of the cap pages to work up a rough sketch of an atricle i'm working on about porn stars, so i kind of can't Porthole the capital, as i should do, as, you know, the rules state, but it is Portholed, just so we're clear on that. and secondly-

[he swan vestas the pall mall, sucks in some sweet smoke, and he turns to Carol. he points the glowing cigarette tip at her]

you can talk.

[he glares at her, shoves the cigarette between his lips, puffs on it as he continues to glare]

and thirdly-

[he whirls away from the cherrywood, he paces over the glass tiles]

we'll send daniel white's Tinweed Man up to the Teminal. a damn fine capital, thought it might be, and Carol seconded it, so...

[he walks over to the edge of the tiles where his empty tumbler lies. he'd lost it in the fall. he grabs it up and walks over to the cherrywood]

we here at TQR are getting shit done. the capital is flowing, people are getting paid, the gears are turning and the deluge is as strong as ever. always forward, right, Pop?

[walking by jesus, doomey slaps him on the shoulder and moves on to his desk]

and fourthly-

[he slams the empty tumber on the desktop]

i need a refill. just found out Jerry Lewis is dead.

[Carol leans forward in the pilot's chair and pours Boligard a good three fingers of amber. She sets the bottle back on the desktop and leans back in the chair]

I could have told you that yesterday, Jack.

[She smiles]

[doomey grabs up the tumbler, throws back the amber, sucks in air through his clenched teeth. he shakes his head again, and then lowers his head, and he stands there, silent, unmoving]
