Beauty and Perfection
by D. M. Larson
a monologue from the play "Flowers in the Desert"
by D. M. Larson
Beauty and perfection. That's what you are Miss Shelly. Bet those boys back home would be doing a quite a bit of howling if they saw you now. Look at all the wonderful things time has done to you.
And when I get to Hollywood and become a star, they'll wonder
where this goddess came from. But my past will be a mystery, because life
before this moment ain't worth telling about. After those early years things
have only gotten better.
Actually I'll bet being born was one of the biggest let-downs of all. I spent all that time wrapped up in that little space in my mama, and for what? I pop out and look around, screaming, wondering if this was such a good idea. Wondering why someone didn't tell me sooner what it was gonna be like those first few years, 'cause if someone had told me, I don't think I woulda come out.
This monologue is from the published play "Flowers in the Desert" by D. M. Larson available on Amazon.com ISBN-13: 978-1530169085
