vignette 5

A guy and a girl in an old empty catholic church, stained glass, pigeons, benches, ornate molding, rickety stairs. Then there's the balcony, a secret balcony. She plays the drums, he plays the guitar, she plays the piano while he tries to make his guitar sound like a spaceship synth. The conversation lasts 2 hours, he makes fun of the faces she makes, he gets excited about equipment that she doesn't understand. He admits to being a romantic. She tries to explain why she's afraid of aliens and not ghosts. Knobs and cords and pedals are strewn everywhere, an accordion lays in the corner with a broken key. The sun goes down and 2 small lights come on. They walk home to their separate apartments and call it a night.
