Miscellaneous Mental Musings of an Emerging Artist

Whims and whimsy.

In my mind’s eye Barron Trump has more or less evolved into the awkward child protagonist of a Wes Anderson film.

[TRANSITION MUSIC: Chad & Jeremy, “A Summer Song.”]
[TITLE CARD: Pigeon Park, New York]

(BARRON sits on park bench throwing jellybeans to pigeons. TIFFANY sits down next to him.)

BARRON
They like the red ones best.

TIFFANY
I thought pigeons were color blind.

BARRON
No. Pigeons see more colors than we do.

TIFFANY
Oh.

(A lengthy silence. The pigeons coo and peck at the scattered jellybeans.)

TIFFANY
He’s never going to change.

BARRON
I know.

(A lengthy silence. BARRON crinkles the brown paper bag of jellybeans and then hands it over to TIFFANY.)

BARRON
Excuse me.

[TRANSITION MUSIC: The Pretty Things, “Don’t Bring Me Down”]

(BARRON stands and strides purposefully offscreen. Montage of BARRON striding purposefully across several disconnected scenes, including a New York City street, a Penn Station train platform, a patio brunch in progress, and the halls of the United States Capitol. BARRON encounters GAETZ, who is looking at his own teeth in a sugar spoon.)

BARRON
He’s not your dad.

GAETZ
What?

BARRON
That’s all I have to say to you.

(BARRON strides purposefully away.)
