ALONE, BUT NOT LONELY: Tom "shares" at a twelve-step support group on Valentine's day.
THE POEM WRITER, who after having a little too much to drink, delivers a bitter, funny, self-loathing, self-aggrandizing speech to the Poem Writers Guild.
AN LA AGENT TALKS ABOUT LOVE, or more accurately about power and abandoment-love Hollywood-style.
GOOD-BYE, JACK: A kid works the drive-thru window at Jack-in-the-Box. The night they take the clown away he realizes he's "just another little drive-thru guy in orange and brown, alone on the graveyard shift."
JOCKO THE CLOWN, backstage in a moment of crisis, suffers from extreme "mime block."
OL' GATOR is an aging TV weatherman who has been kicked off the air for politically-incorrect statements. His farewell apology skids into a near breakdown.
DIARY OF A VOYEUR chronicles a writer, who instead of meeting his deadlines, spends months obsessing and writing about a couple in a window across his courtyard.
THE NIGHT ALI LOST: A life-long men's room attendant at the Roseland Ballroom relates with grace his point of view of the Big Band era, racism and bodily functions.
JAGUAR JESUS: A young man listens to a street saxophone player. The two trade riffs, each "stroking the night, blazing out of control."
