Contents: Prologue --
It was a tragic move --
The parlor was uncomfortable as the cellar --
The kind of freedom I had always needed --
A battle of angels above them --
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over, arithmetic! --
Not about nightingales --
The play is memory --
Alma is Spanish for soul --
You didn't know Blanche as a girl --
They live from the heat --
This one was meant most for the vulgarity of performance --
The earth destroys her crooked child --
But we've never talked to each other! --
Some things are marked by their nature to be not completed --
God shows a savage face to people --
Lost in the beanstalk country, the ogre's country --
High Point is built on a cavern --
Conclusion.
Responsibility: by Benjamin Nelson.
