Transient Scripts: Jude
Hello, mother. It's Jude.
I know; I'm calling from a pay phone.
Downtown Erie, that's where I live.
The farm doesn't have any phones. I've told you that.
No, I don't have any money so I can't buy a cell phone.
I don't need money. Everything I need is given to me on the farm.
I work for it.
No, they pay me with things I need.
No, I'm not going to request money instead, that's the whole point. Anyway, I called to check up on you. How are you doing?
Good. I am.
It's taken care of.
METHADONE. You need to get your hearing ch-
YOU NEED TO GET YOU'RE HEARING CHECKED, MOTHER.
I do not mumble. Everyone else can hear me. I do no-
Everyone within two blocks of here knows your son is a junkie.
No, a JUNKIE.
Listen, let's not talk-
Let's not talk about this.
Mother! Did you hear me? I don't want to talk about it.
Shut the fuck up!
Mother…I'm sorry. I didn't mean it.
Are you still…?
I love you.
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
