"I will rise now and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek the one I love." She is whispering that, and she whispers, "I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine. He said, this stature of mine is like to a palm tree, and my breasts like clusters of grapes. He said he would come to me then. I am my beloved's and his desire is only toward me."

Background Edit

Significance in narrative Edit

Somewhere in America Edit

In Los Angeles, a wannabe movie producer meets with a prostitute named Bilquis. She asks him to pray to her and worship her as they have sex, and he does. After he climaxes, he looks down to see his body slipping inside her up to the chest. He continues to worship her as his body disappears into her vagina. Satisfied, Bilquis closes her eyes and goes to sleep.

Interlude 1 Edit

In Los Angeles, at 2:00 a.m. on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Bilquis roams the streets, looking for johns to worship her. She has started using the internet to find dates because it's been raining recently. It's about to start raining again and as she is leaving, a white stretch limo pulls up to her. She gets in and the passenger/john is Technical Boy. Bilquis lies and says her name is Ayesha and then jumps out of the limo when it starts to slow. She runs in fear, trapped between a cliff face and a hillside. The limo hits her when she's trying to climb the hillside. Technical Boy gets out to taunt her before returning to the limo and she is run over again and again before the limo drives away.
