Monologue 1 - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

it was only last night
that i noticed that there were
only two fireflies
lighting the mahogany tree

the other day
they cut the chico
for they need firewood
the little boy once told his mother
that a white fairy lives there

what is the point?
the white fairy owns the tree
and it is only the little boy who believes about this

the chico tree is where the fireflies
sleep in the morning

two fireflies have not accepted
that their dwelling is gone
now they entertain the illusion
that the mahogany
could still be the chico tree
in their own minds.

that is what the legend is.
and you may not believe it.

now that boy does not believe
in white fairies anymore.
