Sweet(S)pea(s)


She accepted her large slice of cake and looked at the rich fruit within it. There were at least seven hundred calories in that, she thought, but it did not matter; she was a traditionally built lady and she did not have to worry about such things.

Ask me anything
The bed we loved in was a spinning world
of forests, castles, torchlight, clifftops, seas
where we would dive for pearls. My lover’s words
were shooting stars which fell to earth as kisses
on these lips; my body now a softer rhyme
to his, now echo, assonance; his touch
a verb dancing in the centre of a noun.
Some nights, I dreamed he’d written me, the bed
a page beneath his writer’s hands. Romance
and drama played by touch, by scent, by taste.
In the other bed, the best, our guests dozed on,
dribbling their prose. My living laughing love -
I hold him in the casket of my widow’s head
as he held me upon that next best bed.
— Carol Ann Duffy, “Anne Hathaway” (via greenkneehighs)

At this point, the dialogue returns to the script.

My recommendation for production is to improvise the story. Without doubt, a few cast members will excel at this, while others will not; some will never even want to try. On certain nights the scene will soar, and on others it may be excruciating: slow, awkward, not very funny. But the attempt itself is always exciting; it creates a situation wherein the performers become like Scheherezade herself and must entertain an audience alone and under pressure.

Pallas’s cat is a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montane steppe of Central Asia. The species is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline, and hunting, and has therefore been classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by IUCN since 2002.
