Speak of sea turtles
And toes digging in the sand,
Keeping to the script.

Aw, thank you! Sorry this one was much vaguer than usual as it was referencing a play I’m preparing to be in. It’s sometimes frustrating to memorize monologues (or, if your memory’s bad like mine to memorize anything) because the wording is foreign, and often it takes some time to make the order feel natural. Also the character in this particular play (Two Rooms by the talented Lee Blessing) often speaks in stream-of-consciousness monologues. (In one monologue he references his wife’s toes digging in the sand and that launches him onto a tangential metaphor about sea turtles.) It happens to be particularly difficult to follow someone else’s thought process.

Thank you so much! I never thought I’d write so many haiku, but as you know they can be fairly addictive
