The new issue of Musea, #173 for Feb/Mar is out in print and at the regular stops that include The MAC, The Inwood, Half Priced Books – the main store, Paperbacks Plus, and Curiosities.
Webmaster Matthew has also posted it on the musea.us site.
This is a one act play in verse. It’s called Interrogation. It’s a frightening drama about the worst of future worlds.
The idea came from a biography of the painter Rothko. The college he was teaching painting at, called him in for a talk. Said they were upset at his novel teachings. Reminded him that they were all TEAM players. As if that was an excuse to fall into line.
Here is the first lines of Interrogation
The light was harsh
on its sole object
a painter in a hard back
stiff metal chair.
Somewhere in the dark
sat the questionnaires.
Folded hands and
“You are here
of your own free will?”
“You are here
to answer a query
of the school board
that employs you?”
“Let me go.”
“We are not here
to threaten or cajole you.”
“Let me go then.
Let me go…”
“This is only a
few days of your life.
We ask you and
you instruct us.”

Let me know what you think.
