Storyboard Text

  • Im going to dinner with Emily Dickinson. I’m nervous but I know I can do this. She’s a beautiful woman.
  • I’m sure i can do this. She won't figure it out. It will be a nice dinner, perhaps I shall take her home.
  • I’m good at secrets, the best. Why even I myself often think I know little or nothing of my real life.
  • Only a few hints, a few diffused faint clews, and indirections
  • Time to go.
  • I have a date with Walt Whitman but..I havent been out in years. I’m so very nervous. Look in the mirror.. You’re shaking.
  • I cant bring myself to.. I dont know. The spaces.. Theres so many open spaces. The doc calls it agorophobia, but truthfully thats not it.
  • I just cant stand the feeling of open space around me. That’s not so bad. He wont laugh at me, he wont even know.
  • I can hide it.. I’m good at hiding things. But I wonder what we will talk about. Its been a long time since ive had to communicate.
  • To wonder what myself will say and what itself will say to me. I cant do this. Im sure I cant. He’ll know.. I’m having second thoughts.
  • I mean what’s the point? If I have to hide who I am.. What’s the point?
  • Nobody could ever love someone so cowardly as to be afraid of nothing more than a single open space in a room.
  • I'm running late.
  • End of Scene 1.
