Alphonse: I see... them. Damn those binoculars. (throwing them down)

Armand: Why? They're out of focus, or what is it? Tell me, do you tell it me. I think, do you love me, or don't you?

Alphonse: I see... them. Coming. They are coming. Do you see them?

Armand: Ah! I think I do! What shall I tell them, when they come? I mean, what... shall I do?

Alphonse: I'm sure it is against you, 5000 rifles, 10,000 artillerymen, half a million men on horseback, bareback riders, men on tentpoles, the whole circus, it's after you.

Armand: What did you say? The whole circus, is after me. The whole circus. If that is what you've said, be damned to you.

Alphonse: What did you say, sir? To me, I mean. What did you say?

Armand: I SAID BE DAMNED TO YOU! GO AWAY, GET OUT OF MY SIGHT!

Alphonse: Well, if that's your attitude, I'm going then.

Armand: Leave the field at once! I'm cringing, at the first, they've just been sighted, I can't go on, with this, how can I? Where are my parks, of artillery? To the rear, what have we, I say, do you hear? What have we, to the rear? Or do you not hear me, are you hard of hearing?

Alphonse: Deaf to attrition.

Armand: It's disastrous, we'll be slaughtered, what a d饕稍le there will be, all will come to naught, we'll be sometime gone, I can tell you that, sometime gone, some little time away.

Alphonse: I've... been thinking.

Armand: Have you? What of?

Alphonse: Of the times before, in Germany.

Armand: Grand days. What of it?

Alphonse: I say, would not you care to listen, for a change?

Armand: Damn your trots. I'm listening.

Alphonse: Would the subject, listening, call for a change of venue, to your mind?

Armand: Oh, very well. Let's go to my tent. There's brandy. (They enter the tent.)

enter Captain Victourin

Victourin: The smell, of roses, of violets, in the camp, before a battle, I love it, do you hear, I adore it. Where are you?

Victorine: (running) Here I am. Breathless. With delight.

Victourin: Despatch my orders? My love.

Victorine: And running. Yes, of course.

Victourin: Good. Now, my love, we shall dine, a feast is prepared. A love-feast.

Victorine: It's six o'clock, in the morning, for God's sake, Victourin.

Victourin: We shall dine upon the hearts of our enemies. A feast of battle is prepared.

Victorine: Oh, my dear, I'm coming too!

(march off.)

Victorine: I'm coming with you.

(exit.)

Armand: (emerging from tent) I'm drunk, boys, as I live, boys, as I live, boys, as I live, I'm drunk.

Alphonse: A fine singing voice.

Armand: You've never heard it before? Once, never?

Alphonse: On the rise, over the little hill, to your right.

Armand: (shrieking) Oh, Jesus... oh, sweet mercy of our Lord, Mary and Joseph, saints in heaven, look down on me, a sorrowful, sinning man! Woe is me! O, woe is me!

Alphonse: There, there.

Armand: Yes, I know it. I have done. To arms! The saber strikes a rattling chord. For the Queen of heaven's sake, strike down her enemies. The righteous man shall ever be upborne. We shall die, I fear it.

Alphonse: Do you hear?

Armand: What?

Alphonse: The guns are firing.

Armand: Oh, God. Say 覧

Alphonse: Give the order.

Armand: MAN THE PARKS OF ARTILLERY!

Alphonse: Very good. That would hold them.

Armand: There's some hope, do you think?

Alphonse: There's some hope. I think.

Scene 2

a palace

lackeys and footmen, arranging.

Vivienne: A string quartet's. The 覧 anyway, the answer's the same no matter how you slice it. Four chairs, yes?

Footman: Yes, m'lady.

Vivienne: Oh, you. What a party we shall have, in next to no time at all, tonight at least. Puddings be done at five, fair at eight. (holding a compact.) Oh, I would look a chaos on a night like this one. Never gives over. No, not this one. (pause.) I titillated all her, my one rose, my... hyacinth chappie. I... don't remember, now. The strength of her scent, of her rose, was indomitable. I can't remember, or very nearly, I can't remember anything but her oily tuberous fiber, her smelly oily tuberous fiber rose, her clinging scent of jellied elms, the spraying reek of her jasmines, in her throws of love. It was incredible, to me, the jerk and spasm of it, the spray and hot spasms, the hot throws of her love were her torments, her own, very hot torments, spraying all down my throat. I remember, spraying, all down her my throat, the reek and all her spraying, all down her throat, all down her throat, all down my, her lovely, down her throat, her down her throat, her lovely loving down her throat, how happy we are, like this, pressing her breasts, squeezing her nipples.

Lackey: Madam, the days are not very short.

Vivienne: Your balls, cuddling them out like athem lamps, out like a light, and then on, back on like a searching lamp.

Lackey: The lights, ma'am. Will you have them on? Or off? Till the guests arrive. Or just before. When we are ready, we will let you know.

Vivienne: I am a guest. Light the lamps, when you are ready.

Lackey: My cock is out, madam, a drowning man, only you can save, take him in hand, madam, take him home and put him to bed, I'm yours and you'll get work out of him, I'll tell you that, straight and to bed, my lass, madam, my ass and yours to bed we'll carry, to manger and trough, a long furlough, and we'll carry...

Vivienne: I am Vivienne, the strumpet.

(exeunt)

 

Scene 3

The fairyland wonderland of her orgasms. musical interlude. Bach, B-minor Mass, Kyrie. The attendants are transforming the palace. A surreal hoax. Wooden planks, festooned, bridge the furniture. Palace transformed, a multicultural festooning conflagration, disjunct, blaring, outrageous. Bland daring behind the scenes producing a charade of pleasure nullified, annealed. Chuckling heard behind the scenes, the servants heard behind the scenes, go out.

(blackout)

 

Scene 4

Vivienne: (as lights come up slowly) I'm washed cleanly, behind the scenes I'm smelling like a rose, I'd like a Perrier or a pink gin fizz, if I could stomach it, looking at this... I'm sure Daddy looking at this would have fainted, the brachia would have bursted, all have been enough, would over here have been enough, I'm bursting, must have been, enough, sit down.

Strumpets: (strewn around) The spring is here. Tra-la, here around is anyway enough. Chir-ree, my clit is fast enough, to catch any man in flagrant delicto. Is my delight to be enough, for any man to tremble, dry as fasting kite in tree, I'm nauseous, but it will any do enough, it will any do enough, for me, a tree will do if any tough enough be found unwilling, willing. To be found unwilling, willing is to be any found rough and tough enough to be unguided, to the ended, terminus.

Strumpet: My brains are boiling, I've to be found unwilling, my curds are curling, culled this morning, picked unseasonably green a-pickle, to be found unseasoned grain to be grained unseasonably is to be found again, unwilling, sucked off as to be a tapkeg all unwillingly frothy and gay.

Another Strumpet: All unwillingly, and my discs proboscis-like obtrude willingly upon you, to be sucked turn and turn about, as rocks are to be sucked, in maritime countries.

Another Strumpet: Find me a man like that, a hard man full of woe and salts, like bleached earth, I'll skin him, flay him to the earth, I'll pay his way, he'll pay him dearly, for the salts, the bleached earth.

Another Strumpet: The scarred shins, the foreskins are like pork rinds, I swallow them, to mine they go, then and they go far and wee go far and wide and up the Amazon.

(chorus of laughter)

Another Strumpet: Wide under the river, breastplates gleaming with dubious tears, the wet wide under eyes, the seven sever under ochos nuevos, huevos rancheros under subvert fuges.

Another Strumpet: Wide under the Amazon, explore the belly of your adversary, the marshy glens (titter), the fenny heaths (titter), the laughter of petite winds of heathery glens, the marshy heaths (titter) the bulbous outpourings of titillation, sorrow, succor and comfort.

Strumpets: Like television, we are naked. Steaming in any way your cockles of your shell, the dribbles of your inanities, we succor you, you apes, you cretins, you leering licking subcontinent of hot desires.

Strumpet: Naked as you bathe, my teeth seek out your balls.

Another Strumpet: To caress them, spit them out in little pills.

Another Strumpet: To bleed you, let them out, the pearls of your desire.

Another Strumpet: The pearls of teeth your own wife covets.

Another Strumpet: Covets so madly, her own sperm so costly, so ever rare, so ever costly, as to do her own mischief, she will rarely if ever handkerchief if once, if ever twice or three times, daily, or if her own doubt intervenes, twice monthly, with her twice-sharpened own straight razor.

Another Strumpet: Gashly, her own straight razor worketh, doubly on her own sweet gash, thrillingly pellucid greed speaks her own forth, the moth of her own speaks of desire runneth to her grave.

Another Strumpet: Whinnied, and was down it.

Another Strumpet: Into her own grave, at last, whinnied into winnowed fervor. Alone at last with its torments.

Another Strumpet: Erebus, the nightshade, and the elderberry bush.

Another Strumpet: Contrive to make her happy.

Another Strumpet: Beguile to win her new torments over lasting time.

Another Strumpet: The winner's last, a new sea-foam's champing the bit a new foal wobbly as new sea-legs straddles the fence new-born.

Another Strumpet: As gifted as new-mown hay.

Another Strumpet: The breath fills out as new lungs fill as new lungs out as new-filled balloons creased the new-moaning hay fills the new breasts.

Another Strumpet: Vivienne, what are you doing?

Vivienne: (offstage) I'm finishing with a new customer, my oyster's dripping-wet, with some algae, I never figured it out, the tips of my breasts are carmine and curdled milk, his cock gives cream, but my shellfish doesn't give any chocolate truffle creams to just anyone, on any order, but one must fight one's way to the crusty tidbit.

Strumpet: Oh, give over. Mine's a channel, the English Channel, come swimming in it.

Vivienne: (entering) Mine's the luck. I'm fingered to the bone, the marrow's spilling out to me poor unconscious ears, all red a-flame with the unconscious gossip.

(wild laughter)

Strumpet: Titties, mind my very own place. It's a hard staff, what comes after is not to be borne.

Another Strumpet: I'm intentionally funny, you see, my cock's to be united with me, in a band, we're one united, at this junction.

Another Strumpet: Fountain of all my hopes, that is, of all my elegies.

Another Strumpet: The disquisition resumes on driblets of undigested porn.

Another Strumpet: I'm agin it.

Another Strumpet: Down the river, the black girls are singing as it used to be, in the crickets and the hymen.

Another Strumpet: The cock-land of hymen.

Vivienne: Dimly perceived, and then gone.

Strumpet: Forwhy, my pretty tit-licking clit, my sunny face, are you so sad? What about a Nesbitt's orange soda?

Another Strumpet: A Hires root beer?

Another Strumpet: A candid photo of yourself astraddle on my knees, my jaws working overtime?

(the shell-game enthusiasts burst in)

S-G Enthusiast: The game's are up. Who's got the chickpea?

Strumpets: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Another S-G E.: I've money here, to boot.

S-G Enthusiasts: The chick-pea! The chick-pea!

S-G E.: Swirling matters enough, twirling makes the going great.

Another S-G E.: Girls, let's get enough in the kitty. The world's got stop enough.

Another S-G E.: The Lesbian tirades! The old tire's to boot!

Another S-G E.: The lamp-swing! The mothballs!

Strumpet: Out of service, gents, the anyway is at your disposal.

S-G E.: Spin the roulette wheel!

Another S-G E.: The manacles! The forechains!

Another S-G E.: The buzz-saw! Where's my tool and hammers?

Strumpet: The forceps, if you please.

All: Haw. Haw. Haw.

S-G E.: The whelm's are spilling over.

Another Strumpet: Like a new-laid custard.

All: Haw. Haw. Haw.

S-G E.: How like me, to receive me with a apple in its mouth.

Strumpet: The days are done when a man came calling with a feather in his cap.

S-G E.: And a watch to his fob!

Vivienne: And a penis to his knuckles.

S-G E.'s: Oh! A roaring boy's the life for me!

S-G E.: To sea!

Another S-G E.: To sea!

S-G E.'s: And then, to pee!
The pissing life for me!
Yes, the pissing life for me!

(buns are served)

S-G E.: The rascals. One of them's been at you.

Vivienne: Oh? How can you tell?

S-G E.: His scent's hanging around his crotch like clover and dandelions.

Strumpet: Give us a game, lover boy.

S-G E.'s: The pissing life for me!

Vivienne: Yes, but how would you know if it was me?

Lackey: The game is served hot, anyway, in the drawing-room.

S-G E.: The game is served here, anyway. Sir Cock o' the Walk, my boyo.

Lackey: Oh, I'm dipping me wick here, all right, just gandering at you all.

Strumpet: Bob off, bummy, here's a good lad, come to call and pay his respects. To his elders, I have no doubt.

Lackey: I'm bursting with indignation and regret, I'll piss over you all if you again tempt me.

Another Strumpet: Little Mr. Sugar Candy Bags, I'm telling Mama, if you don't come to me. I'm splitting, if you must know, like a ripe eager fruit. Come and cull me.

Lackey: I'm over temptation. Prick me some dildoes, gents, the lady sparks my attention.

S-G E.'s: Spin the wheel. Play the lottery!

Lackey: Uh-oh.

Another Strumpet: What'samatter, bright-eyes? Cat lost you a button, maybe? My eyes are green cat's-eyes, aren't then? Come and play out with me, I'm creaming and dreaming of you, only if you are a man's play, then, I'm if only you are not a then, a play you are, mamma's breasts are big enough for you are dear, to me and always will be big enough. The little dear.

Lackey: I'm spilling over. I cannot bear.

Vivienne: The right honourable Countess Wilhomirska requests your presence, dearie.

Another Strumpet: Another presence, dearie. I've another French kiss for you, my sweetheart.

Vivienne: Come now, quickly. This lad's unbearable presence sets my tinkling gourd afire. I must part my wearied legs and let fly.

Another Strumpet: Oh, gaw! I'm catchin' it from his come, too! All a-down 'is pant legs, it is, too! I can feel it from here. Squirming!

Another Strumpet: Look at him tremble. Agaw, I'm not going far from here till I've put my legs around something here.

S-G E.'s: The! Lions! Are! Loosing!

Strumpets: Tee-hee-hee!

Strumpet: Kindly tell me where the lavatory is, dear, I want to wash my come-stained linen.

Lackey: I'mmmmm commming! To the end, we're never at the end, at last! Never at the end. Enough, coursing never enough.

Another Strumpet: Go back to beddy, dearie. The night has young, the milkmaid never cares, she's never had enough, she's off on her rounds.

Lackey: The day is enough, for me. (exits)

Another Strumpet: Poor dearie. The little twit.

S-G E.'s: Tilt the wheel! Pick the brainspan! The roulette wheel holds the brainspan in its grips, the wasps are about enough to upslide the Enoch Arden! The roulette wheel landslides up enough to scale Mt. Everest!

Strumpet: I do wish you'd lackey me'd rather, dearie, play you know than anything else.

Another Strumpet: Boys! Like me that, that's the thing, I like me that twat's anything.

Strumpet: Oh, Lord, the merry's a note, indeed!

Voice outside: (consternation, merriment) The thing's to be drunk, me hearties! I best believe we'd better be drunk! Boyo!

Strumpet: The thing's another, we'd be drunk, I fancy, at last, on a sip of cool red wine.

S-G E.'s: The thing's anointed, cool red wine! Shimmering and hot! Spiced cider; gum of Arabia! Tragacanthic Pyroxyline! I recommend it, that!

Voice outside, nearer: The thing's at last outside! At that, who's to know! I think the bugger's got to be aright, the thingum's jigging outside! Hooray!

Strumpet: Jiggers, and Ponies, for her Ladyship!

Alphonse: Zounds! Here's a mean by much! A penis, a-stream, by God's golden light, afloat on a wondering streamlet, by autumnal all-hallowed woodlet, a streaming by all the woodland flora and the woodlet fauna around the place! Betimes! Bespoken! And yet!?!

Armand: Broken up the clock, the besprinkled dews manacled the forebears, I bear you in my paws redemption, tidings of my great joy!

Strumpet: Zounds! I've got a bloody great run in my stocking!

Armand: Oh, all right! I'm felling better, the trees are felling, before me, what, a view, me felling trees in my forest! What a magnificent vista!

Strumpets Alphonse and S-G E.'s: HA! and-HA! and-HA! and-HA! and-HA! (ironically beside themselves) and ever rises the morning sun, thanks to your efforts.

Armand: Oh, God! Dimly riseth this morning's sun, runneth over the hills, the plains, the over-dales and through-valleys, and behind the upchucking plains and valleys there screams a valley covert by the wayside, a little hamlet deserted by the hillocks, followers of Satan, wayside beside the fountain, beside the hillocks' hilly oaks, beside the morning psalm's behind-the-oak's of Judah-glad thanksgiving, glad merriment of tidings glad be-brought and glad broughten, and never willing to be unbegotten, unwept, never only to be unloved too openly, never perceived lest to be unforgotten, to be never appointed, to the never realm, of wherewithout never to be appointed, of never realms unfathomable might never to be unappointed out of daily, through Christ our Lord, amen; though night must fall, and with it the dusk, the sere, the withered, the lame, and the unhope, wither me not, know me any all or any such withered, halt, lame, blind, or never any such. To be any whithersoever, any much sooner, than came such whithersoever. (long pause.) Never any came. Never any such appear. Thy came and went never too soon. (pause.) And never again appear.

(fadeout.)
