Wahzinak´s First Letter



WAHZINAK
Dear Salvador Agron,
I've read your prison writings.
We share a common bond.
People of color must keep fighting.
I live here in the desert, you need
not write me back.
I hope one day you'll ease your hurt.
Yours truly, Wahzinak.

TONY
She read the prison paper?

SALVADOR
Yes.

TONY
How'd she get it?

SALVADOR
She belongs to one of those radical
groups that we mail it to.
Fine looking woman. Wahzinak…

TONY
You'll never see her, Sal.
Why don't you just forget about it?

SALVADOR
If she thinks it's useless,
then why write like she's in love?

TONY
Because in the desert nobody cares what happens!

SALVADOR
She does, Luis. She does.

WAHZINAK
I live here in the desert, you need not write me back.
I hope one day you'll ease your hurt.
Yours truly, Wahzinak.
