PLAY #287: REST (OCT 5)

A street.

SHUTTER draws down shutters of shops.

SITTER sits.

 

SHUTTER

If it’s good enough for Him Upstairs.

 

SITTER

Or Her Upstairs.

 

SHUTTER

Or Them.

 

SITTER

Indeed.

 

SHUTTER

But you catch the dribble of my drift? If God needs a break from the milling of the tread, then what’s to say that our feet shouldn’t get off the mad whirl one day out of seven?

 

SITTER

Preach!

 

SHUTTER

Day off.

 

SITTER

Indeed.

 

SHUTTER draws down more shutters.

SITTER sits.
