SLEEPER'S LOVE OF SLEEP BY JEFFREY LO
(DOWNLOAD PDF HERE)
An open mic night.
SLEEPER approaches the stage.
This is my…
I don’t know.
I dedicate this to the best thing about life.
How I love thee.
Fuck counting sheep.
Because if I’m counting sheep I am not with you –
And I want to be with you, sleep.
There isn’t enough I can say about you, sleep.
Because I love thee.
I would sleep with thee.
If you weren’t already sleep.
If you stare at the word sleep for long enough –
Suddenly, a voice from the audience yells –
IF YOU KEEP ON WITH THIS BULLSHIT WE WILL ALL FALL ASLEEP.
Then you’re welcome.
SLEEPER leaves the stage.
END OF PLAY.
