Chewy Center


Setting: Somewhere, out there.

(lights up, Ono and Ana, center stage, back to back, heads lolling against each other, dreamy, softly, sensuously)

Ono: Mmmmm.

Ana: Oooooo.

Ono: Ahhhhh.

Ana: Nnnnnn.

Ono: Hiii, there.

Ana: I'm Ana.

Ono: And so is she.

Ana: Dreaming.

Ono: Life.

Ana: Never awake.

Ono: Always free.

Ana: Anything.

Ono: Anything.

Ana: In sleep, there's lust.

Ana: as if

Ono: the chewy center

Ana: doesn't exist.

Ono: Oh my... the chewy center.

Ana: Oh. My.

Ono: It has nothing to do with doing.

Ana: It is just... there.

Ono: Inside.

Ana: Softly, thickly, wet... ly.

Ana: Rhetorical.

Ono: Well, yes.

Ana: It is.

Ono: It is.

Ana: But, it's... so much more
