An excerpt from Blood and Semen
The monologue by Wolf Larsen
Does the monologue begin with a woman's buttocks flying through the O'Hare Airport to India? The highway from the South Side of Chicago through all the impulse of high-rises pouring to India?
The monologue begins in the Amazon Rainforest and the South Side ofChicago at the same time. A rush of my spermatozoa oh those sun-filled tits! But first the monologue has to begin and end in the samemoment.
We begin with prostitution politics and things like that and then we splatter all the lushness and ecstasy and soaring of the human race and its history against the wall and we call it art or graffiti or we call it creativity or a crime and the audience is falling down hundreds of floors and the audience is rising millions of thunderstorms and the monologue stabs and stabs the actor with all the paradise of question marks and exclamation points sailing like boats and rocket ships out of the audience's eyes.
You have to climb up a volcano while its exploding lava all over you. You have to walk screaming fires and visions as you fly to Warsaw or Mumbai or the moon - whooopeeeee - HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A monologue (or monolog) is when the character may be speaking his or her thoughts aloud, directly addressing another character, or speaking to the audience, especially the former. Monologues are common across the range of dramatic media (plays, films, animation, etc.). It is distinct from a soliloquy, which is where a character relates his or her thoughts and feelings to him/herself and to the audience without addressing any of the other characters. It is also distinct from an apostrophe, wherein the speaker or writer addresses an imaginary person, or inanimate object, or idea.
