A one-act play by

Jonathan M. Vick


An athiest and a prostitute fall in love
. . . and lose a little something


When an atheist loses his wedding ring in the bed of a prostitute, his first concern is finding the ring . . . disregarding the fact that his finger has also fallen off.
While searching for the ring he finds his finger, and a drawer full of fingers . . . the prostitute has been stealing them.
The atheist wants to know why.

We all leave a little something behind, don't we? You don't get them back, you know, once they're gone. You just have to leave them behind . . . try to grow a new one where the old one fell off.

What value is there in the love of an athiest?

The same as in the love of a prostitute I suppose.
