3.(Darkness. Suddenly, the far off soundof a train’s whistle registers. Thenthe rustle of sheets. Beat. Finally, alight on a night stand clicks on toreveal a restless young man in bedclothes beneath a threadbarecomforter.)YOUNG MAN Three nights in a row. (Checks the time on his alarm clock.) Same time each evening. Shoulda had my head examined, taking this room so close to the train yard. Had a choice of three I found scribbled on index cards pinned to a bulletin board at D’Agostinos. One over Hot and Crusty’s that stank of garlic and had bugs.

Well, he was really my half brother. Or, even...y’know, I have trouble explaining it. My old man had him with this other lady, not my ma. She went by Pepsi--I never knew her, like, given name. Did I mention she was black? From the projects up on Lennox. Anyway, we took him in when she passed away. Doctors said she just wore out her body, Pepsi did. First, just booze-- junkyard shit--then, you know, when that grew old, the pipe. (MORE) (CONTINUED)
