Composer note
This duet is from the scene "Ignition" in the opera Angel's Bone.

The scene description is to give context, but the performers are encouraged to bring in their own world.

After a female customer has finished (choking the BOY ANGEL), MRS. X.E. enters the room of the BOY ANGEL, holding him. At first this seems like a comforting gesture, but then she begins to force herself on him, encouraging HIS hands to explore HER breasts. SHE kisses him gently at first, then becomes aggressive. Meanwhile a man forces the GIRL ANGEL to smoke methamphetamines.

MRS. X.E. takes an axe to the "FOR SALE" sign. The GIRL ANGEL jerks the john off to completion.
