Sample from the Script

Here I sit in my backyard, in the shade of my tree, my big old oak tree.

Here I write stories,
stories about animals, about places, about places I have never been,
about dreams, about this tree.

We have this big hole in my back yard.
I don’t know why. I don’t know why it’s here.
I get stoned sometimes and sit in the hole, hide in the hole,

and watch the children playing in my tree fort.
I love children. They are so innocent.
They have the whole world ahead of them.
I am going to have a hundred of them,
a hundred children just like that big oak,

hundreds of little saplings
that will grow up strong and pure with respect for all races, all people,
and I pray my child is stronger than me.


a homeless girl,
a coked-up real estate agent,
a hippie child of the sixties,
a desperate housewife of the fifties,
a bisexual artist of the twenties,
a young woman who suffered a head injury
and an 1800's English mail order bride
