For another day

E

What are you doing?


MARINA

I'm writing you a letter.


E Writing me...?


MARINA A letter. Yes.


E

About what?


MARINA You'll see.


E When?


MARINA When I send it.


E And that will be?


MARINA You'll see.


E I have a recollection. Of another letter.


MARINA Sure.


E

Will it be anything like that one?


MARINA I can't say.


E You–


MARINA I don't remember that one.


E You must.


MARINA I don't.


E

And?


MARINA Was it full of concern?


E

To a degree.


MARINA Wasn't me.


E I have it in your hand.


MARINA A fraud.


E

You wrote about sadness and holes and crystals–


MARINA And bags for short journeys–


E And the smell of asphalt.


MARINA I would never.


E Right now. You're writing right now.


MARINA I'm not.


E You are.


MARINA Not like that.


E Read it to me then.


MARINA Letters are read not recited. They're sent and received. If I were writing a speech, you'd know.


E Don't worry about me.


MARINA I'm not worried. It's not concerned, it's, um...


E (laughs) You know it sounds like worry.


MARINA I could never sound like that.


E

I know. That's why you write letters.
