...He spat
on the ground
and made clay
of the spittle
and anointed
the man's eyes
with the clay,
sayin to him,
'Go,
wash in the pool
of Silo'am.'
[John 9:6-7]
***********************
"This FRIEND gave me
a book on prayer,
and physical HEALING....
Lord."

[SOLEMN NOD.]
"Yes, child."

"Yeah;
it's NICE and all....
people are always
giving me these..
BOOKS,
to read."
(Grimmace.)
"The thing IS....
before I can REALLY
ENJOY this HEALING-book...
I gotta get my EYES
healed, FIRST!"
(Laugh.)

[NOD.]
"I understand,
Mein kin'der."

"I keep tryin' to
TELL them...
but....."
(Shrug.)
"They just never
GET it; do they
think I wear these
big, SCHMOLT'ZY glasses...
cuz, I think they look SEXY?"

[TURN TO HIS
RIGHT.]
[GENTLE LAUGH
CAN BE HEARD
FROM THE RIGHT-SIDE
OF THE THRONE.]
[SIGH.]
"I understand,
Mein kin'der."

"It's like with that
FONT business.....
EVERYBODY who
WRITES to me,
has the same PROBLEM!"

[PATIENT NODDING
OF A FATHER ACCUSTOMED TO THE
WHINING OF A KVET'CHY
CHILD.]

(Mumbling.)
"I ALWAYS write
back,
'Could you WRITE
in a bigger FONT....
for ME?'"
(Exasperated sigh.)
"Then....they DO...
but, it's like in a 10 and a
HALF: instead of my
usual EIGHTEEN..
or whatever."

[MORE NODDING.]
[BECKON ANOTHER
MESSAGE-BEARING
ANGEL INTO THE
THRONE AREA.]
[THE ANGEL, A
BIG MUSCULAR FELLOW
WITH BLOND CURLY
HAIR AND HUGE WINGS,
COMES TO KNEEL BEFORE
THE THRONE. WITH
BEAUTIFUL HEAD DOWN,
HE HOLDS UP
THE MESSAGE BEARIING
GOLD PLATE, LIKE AN
EXCELLENT WAITER IN
A FANCY RESTAURANT.]

(Continuing grumble.)
(Nasal, whiny voice.)
(Squirm.)
"Yeah.....
whenever my EX writes
to me, it's always in
that mini-TEN-font: but,
we BOTH know that he
does that, on PURPOSE."
(Grim nod.)

[PATIENT FROWN.]
"Child......."

(Louder voice.)
"Yeah, yeah...YEAH!
I know, I KNOW,
I KNOW!"
(Wave hand up at
the ceiling, dismissively.)
"ForGIVEness.....
forSH'NIV'ness!"
(Spit over left
crook of elbow.)

[SIGH.]
[SHAKE HEAD,
FROWNING: READ
THE MESSAGE JUST
DELIVERED BY THE
BIG HANDSOME ANGEL.]

(Impatient tone.)
"So.....WHAT should
I do with this HEALING
BOOK? I don't want to
HURT her FEELINGS?"

[LOOK UP FROM
READING ANGEL-NOTE.]
"Whose,
child?"

(Even louder whine.)
"MY FRIEND'S!
MY FRIEND'S!"
(Glare, rather near-
sightedly, up at the ceiling.)
"Aren't You... LISTENING
to ME?"

[NOD.]
[HAND NOTE OVER
TO HIS RIGHT.]
[PATIENT FROWN.]
[PAUSE.]
"You don't need a
book.. to heal,
My child."

(Impatient sigh.)
"Yeah: especially,
about MIRACLES."
(Derisive snort.)
"Gimme a' BREAK."

[SORROWFUL GAZE.]
"Don't you believe
in Miracles,
My child?"

(Shrug.)
"Yeah....WHAT..ever."
(Sigh.)
"Yeah; I GUESS."
(Small grimmace.)

[QUIET VOICE.]
"What miracle
would you like
Me to do for you,
child."

(Rueful glance to the
ceiling vent.)
"How about, AMNESIA?"
(Laugh, with the nasal
tone of one brought
up in West Philadelphia.)
"THAT would be a good
START!"

[NOD.]
[TENDER VOICE.]
"I understand."

"Don't WORRY 'bout it,
Lord. It's OKAY. I'm
not much into that stuff,
ANYWAY."

"What,
child."

(Look up.)
"MIRACLES....
Lord."

"Ah."
[TENDER GAZE.]
"I thought
you meant,
healing."
**********************
...One thing
I know,
that though
I was blind,
now I see.
[John 9:25]
