1.CHAINSAW MASSACRE(At Rise: Afternoon. GRANT sittingunder a tree reading Walt Whitman's"Leaves of Grass". Birds. Crickets.Cicadas.)GRANT"I believe a leaf of grass is not less than thejourney-work of the stars, And the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain ofsand, and the egg of the wren, And the tree-toad is a chef-d'oeuvre for the highest, And the running blackberry would adorn the parlors ofheaven, And the narrowest hinge in my hand puts to scorn all machinery, And the crow crunching with depress'd head surpassesany statue, --"(CHAINSAW starts up in the distance.GRANT pauses, then continues reading,barely audible.)"And a mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillionsof infidels.I find I incorporate gneiss, coal, long-threaded moss,fruits, grains, esculent roots..."(CHAINSAW increases in volume as itstarts to cut into a tree. GRANT wanders over to the fence and peersover. He becomes distressed by what hesees. With the increasing volume, heruns back to his tree and tries to buryhimself in "Leaves of Grass". He covershis ears. He can't take it anymore. Heruns and climbs over the fence. In a moment, CHAINSAW stops. He runs backover carrying CHAINSAW. His neighbor,JACK, comes after him.)JACKHey! What the hell are you doing? Grant! Give me back my chainsaw!GRANTI can't do it, Jack.
