a matter of sense(s)

CLAY

c’mon man… can’t you see our reputation is on the line here?

STONE

I don’t see it

and frankly,

I don’t care…

CLAY

     I bet you don’t

STONE (CONT’D)

  I’m not budging

CLAY

           where’s your sense of pride, man

STONE

dead

CLAY (CONT’D)

your self-esteem

STONE

within

CLAY

quit playing man

just hear me out

seriously, just try to see this how I see it

there’s a lot at stake here –

STONE

no, thanks

CLAY

f*ck you then n*gga

I should’ve known better than to waste my damn time

with your sorry a*s –

you… you… you know what man?

after all these years, I’ve finally figured it out –

you.. you don’t belong here

you’ve got no sense of self left bro!

I can’t even identify with you no more

STONE

 is not having a sense of self the same as

having no sense at all?

but to have character –

well, is that not more practicable?

but that’s another matter altogether brother

CLAY

hublihubla n*gga

that sh*t don’t make no sense –

eh… seriously tho…

what’chu on about?

STONE

common sense

    Those simple lines are loaded with deep meanings. I love the contrasts, both in the images and the characters, between clay and stone. A beautifully crafted work! Thank you for sharing.

  6. Aaaaaaaaaah love this ! This should be put into a book. Everyone needs to hear that, everyone will interpret differently, I’m not sure I even got it right, but man, that was good.
