Eleanor Paynter


light: gold
set: leaves
water (none): cold
sun: hidden behind
trees      rusty curve of

picnic table
paper towels
apple, cheese

feet: bare     eyes: open

In this scene we will splash out to the dock
sit, watch our reflection sink
into lake of leaves
then:      limbs   out
    jump   in

so that act II when they bring your ashes here
I see you
