CHATTER: A CHARACTER STUDY IN THREE ACTS

Wilma speaks – – – Rosalie listens and says nothing.

 

PROLOGUE

So what’s new?

Haven’t seen you now for eons!

My heavens

Did you get deeper face lines?

 

ACT 1

How providential we

Both need garden supplies

You know Home Depot is heaven

You’re quiet

You’re distant

You’re unfocused

Haven’t changed much though

You look much older.

 

ACT 2

Your nose seems different

Almost looks broken.

Isn’t it difficult to plant

The seeds with a tremulous hand?

That’s a new one for you. I always

Thought you were secure

They’re paging your maiden name?

Is husband gone?

 

ACT 3

She runs with a limp and

Snorts like a damn horse.

She’s so silent thank God she doesn’t call.

 

EPILOGUE

Where’s the damn phone?

            I wonder if she’s on meds?

Wait till

The girls hear this!
