  • JOY: [Looking up into the sky.] Hello? Mother Moon? It's me. Joy. Can you hear me?

    [Pause.]

    Hello?

    [Pause.]

    I know you're up there. I can see you, but ... you're so far away. Why are you so far away?

    [Pause.]

    I just want to talk for a few minutes. Like we used to. Do you remember how we used to talk? It was such fun! What ... what was it we used to talk about? I've forgotten. Beautiful things, I ... I know that, but ... I can't ... I can't quite ...

    [Pause.]

    I don't even remember how I got here. Isn't that strange? I know I came from someplace warm. Warm and dark. And water. There was water. I remember floating in the night sky ... or ... or deep in the ocean. And I remember voices. Big soft angel voices. They told me things. Secrets. They sang to me. Beautiful songs! About ...

    [Pause.]

    I ... I can't remember what they were about anymore. I try, but ... they're gone. Won't you tell me, Mother Moon? Won't you whisper in my ear just one more time? Please?

    [Pause.]

    Why won't you answer me?

    [Pause.]

    What have I done wrong?
