Ext. Dacha. A Russian Country Estate in Disrepair. Dusk.

It’s late. A dog is dead in the street.

         Shadows fuss about on the lawn.

Children tickle themselves and fall to the ground:

         injury, puberty, or battle-fatigue.

A man in his late twenties – seventies on a bad

         hair day – haggard/beleaguered/camouflaged

         (any race, but preferably French)

         wants to know if anyone has ever arranged instructions

                     in alphabetical order for how to write poems.
