It's about the first pioneers to North America. The black slave they sent ahead as a scout was in the picture at all thanks to the Spanish.
Yeah. I'll bet he thanked them every day. You could just as well write a play about the Indians. They blazed the trail across the great plains before anybody.
Before buffalo? You said they made living chasing buffalo. The buffalo were first, just like they say Indians followed elephants, no, mammoths, across Bering Strait land bridge from Siberia when sea level fell. Gāisǐ de! That means Indians are Chinese, or Russian, or . . .
Sure. Why not a play about the goddamn grass the buffalo went after all the time. I'll tell you why. Because the grass doesn't care. Plus it's mute. It couldn't make a play if it wanted to. And it won't pay to see a play, even if it could see a play.
Petrified Forest not stoned because saw man. Happen long before. Foundations Capitol Hill , Bejing, roads to them, all on crust floating on jelly sea molten metal. Two shakes and gone. – Dams in this River just cries in wilderness of tiny creatures wanting drink. River dammed before by rock slides, volcanoes, off-and-on. Why upset when man blocks ? – And before, no river, because here was bottom of the sea. Draining away ocean not our idea. River not our idea. Pollution, materialism, recyclable. Whole planet recyclable. Humanity, too. We: star dust, not lords because stand on dry ground.
