Treasure Island

Michael Pruchnicki


Cabin on Loon Lake


INTERIOR kitchen of rustic cabin
in remote region of northern Michigan
wind howling snow swirling visible
through small window at left

Disheveled man sits at makeshift desk
sorting through stacks of paper
Angular woman leans against iron sink
smoking cigarette after cigarette

MAN> You use the checkbook?

Woman looks around room, smiling.
She gestures toward a cabinet against the wall.

WOMAN> There's some Wheaties in the cupboard.

Man looks startled as he rises to his feet

MAN> You know what I'm saying?

Woman stubs out cigarette in a chipped coffee cup.
She fishes out another from the pack in her shirt pocket.

Man comes around desk and hands her a folded sheet.
Woman unfolds paper and studies it.

WOMAN> This is just plain crazy.

Man turns to desk and unrolls a length of blueprint.
He smooths it and points at the center of the sheet.

WOMAN> I like it.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
