Act I, Scene I — I AM
Tru yellin’ from the roof top: Yo, where the fxck is E?
Nahdee in the penthouse suite screaming through the ceiling: “Last I heard She was up there plotting with you.“ Aye, don’t worry about where I’m at, or who I’m with, just know I’m busy doing me —thunders Egypt’s voice from everywhere…
Peace God, just asking —I ain’t see no clouds ascending, no leaves a’burning, no smoke—- thought you’d disappeared—took a break. Nadira smiles “Well I figured you’d be long gone, somewhere painting stars across my sky.” That was yesterday’s work Queen, but believe you me I’m about to etch into the core of your earth a mu’fxckin masterpiece.
All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.
—As You Like It,
