(With Pretty Boy gone

Peter and Eli

continue the conversation)

 

He is lovely, isn’t she?

Yes, very.

Who could I have chosen to love…

to gall you more?

 

There’s no one.

 

Time hasn’t done a thing but wrinkle you.

 

It hasn’t even done that.

I’ve borne thirty-one connubial years of you.

How is that possible?

 

There are moments when I miss you.

 

Many?

 

Do you doubt it?

 

That’s my life’s burden.

So, Joe gets

the CEO position?

 

I’ve heard rumors,

but I don’t believe it.

 

Losing Pretty Boy will be hard,

for you must give him up.

 

It’s an old man’s lust;

nothing more.

 

How hard do you find it – – –

living in your penthouse?

 

It was difficult in the beginning,

but that’s past.

I find I’ve seen the world enough.

I’ll never let you lose.

You led too many leveraged buyouts

against my company.

 

And I damn near won the last one.

Still, as long as I get trotted out…

for Christmas parties and other occasions

now and then — for I do like to see you — it’s enough.

I ‘m famished. Let’s go eat.

 

(Peter extending his bare arm)

We shall, arm in arm.

 

 Arm Tatoo Lions

And hand in hand.

You’re still a marvel of a man.

 

And you’re my Ms.

(They move to the dining area)
