Titus Andronicus 2014: Shawn Saunders "Dear Diary"

Post by Titus Andronicus cast member Shawn Saunders:

Dear Diary,
Plastic wax face
glass eyes
they are machines
no hearts
no passion
it's evident
that they are devils
they’re being
is cheerless
but detached somewhere
tucked under
sliced concrete
I am the flower
that blossoms
in the grooves
from the turbulance
I am vibrant
flourishing colors
unnoticed against
the grey
rigid backdrop of society
I survived
can you?
that chilly oozing substance
dripping down
the corner of your mouth
that’s me
you wonder
if you could wipe me clean away
you can’t
I’ll ask what’s for dinner
and you’ll eat
what I give you
I wonder who tastes better?
Titus or Saturnine?
Love Aaron.
