How I Learned to Love The F
(On the official staircase with Bree, Karl and the chorus,
Charlie has his hand and face bruised.
(Away from the audience)
Feeling is too much and not feeling is unbearable.
(Turned over, laughing)
Facts are ‘80s car culture?
(With an affirmative step)
Take history out of feeling—it becomes marketing.
(Reciting the wedding registry, light like an egg)
A book, an umbrella, a bunch of walls, a number of elephants,
a baseball bat, a white sock, a yellow shoot, ten landscapes,
one horizon and a thousand roses.
