James: i remember you.
Bette: i’d like to say that you’re in my dreams.
James: you’re the one who made my dreams come true
Bette: you’re usually dead,
James: a few
Bette: without a head,

Bette: and lots of natives are picking their teeth with your bones.
James: i remember, too,
Bette: oh, what a dream!
James: a distant bell,
Bette: it comes at night and taunts me,
James: and stars that fell
Bette: and, like your jokes, it haunts me until
James: like rain out of the blue.
Bette: i’m blue as your face as the last breath leaves you.
James: when my life is through,
Bette: i’ll jump for joy.
