Dialogue following No. 10a



Blanche. I should command here – I was born to rule,
But do I rule? I don’t. Why? I don’t know.
I shall some day. Not yet, I bide my time.
I once was Some One – and the Was Will Be.
The Present as we speak becomes the Past,
The Past repeats itself, and so is Future!
This sounds involved. It’s not. It’s right enough.
