Outside, a badly beaten Collins is discovered by Angel, who offers bandages, comfort, and an invitation for a night on the town. Their instant attraction becomes a bond with the realization that both are HIV-Positive.

LyricsEdit


A HOMELESS MAN:

Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
Somewhere else!
Not here

[The HOMELESS MAN exits. ANGEL gets a good beat going on the tub,
but is interrupted by a moan. He starts to drum again and sees
COLLINS limp to downstage-left proscenium.]

ANGEL:

You okay honey?

COLLINS:

I'm afraid so

ANGEL:

They get any money?

COLLINS:

No
Had none to get --
But they purloined my coat --
Well you missed a sleeve! -- Thanks

ANGEL:

Hell, it's Christmas Eve
I'm Angel

COLLINS:

Angel..? Indeed
An angel of the first degree
Friends call me Collins -- Tom Collins
Nice tree ...

ANGEL:

Let's get a band-aid for your knee
I'll change, there's a "Life Support" meeting at nine-thirty
Yes -- this body provides a comfortable home
For the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

COLLINS:

As does mine

ANGEL:

We'll get along fine
Get you a coat, have a bite
Make a night -- I'm flush

COLLINS:

But my friends are waiting --

ANGEL:

You're cute when you blush
The more the merri -- ho ho ho
And I do not take no

[ANGEL and COLLINS walk off stage right.]
