                           Focus the work and you’ll find,    

                           Success in productivity,

 

Take a class in your field,

Push yourself to the task

Imagination revealed,

Can you feel it, I ask?

Take note of the room,

And bring your answer to the floor,

When the urge comes to grow let yourself out the door,

 

And understand you play a part in this world of art,

You play a part in this world of art.               (Repeat)

“On Purpose” by Evelina Temple-Tamara

 

 

Characters:  Callie, Josephina

 

Setting: A Fancy Restaurant in Oakland

 

The waiter has just served the food and drink.  Callie accidentally flicks spaghetti on Josephina.

 

 

Josephina:       You are so dead, Callie!

 

Callie:              I’m sorry, I will pay for the stain.  Sorry.

 

Josephina:       You better pay.  I don’t have no money.

 

Callie:              Please forgive me.  It’s an old shirt.  I will get you another one.

 

Josephina:       Well, good luck with that!

 

Callie:              Are we no longer friends?

 

Josephina hugs Callie to show that there are no hard feelings. 

 

Josephina:       I really don’t mind.

 

They go back to eating.  Callie again accidentally flicks more spaghetti on her.

Josephina throws her napkin down, bangs the table, and stomps out.
