An oak forest. Two clowns meet on a fern-bordered path. One holds a chocolate cake; the other holds a guitar. They smile. They gesture exchange. They exchange the guitar for the chocolate cake. They sit. One clown plays the guitar; the other eats cake.

After a moment, the guitar’s D string breaks; the clown holds up the guitar in horror and then begins to weep. Simultaneously, the second clown stops chewing chocolate cake and–after a moment of searching his mouth–pulls a long black hair from his mouth; he too weeps.

The two clowns pause in their weeping, look at one another, and then begin weeping more loudly. They stand and walk off in different directions in search of someone who cares.

The end.
