A monologue from the play by William Missouri Downs
I’ve seen the woman I shall marry, and she is without a doubt the most magnificent creature in all of New York –
flawless except for one minor imperfection – she is totally unaware of my existence. There, through yonder door, ’tis the company break room and – Sophia.
I’ve often daydreamed what our life together would be like. One day we’d accidentally meet in the break room and instantaneously click.
There’d be no kiss on the first date; no, we’d both be too excited about our five-hour dialogue on Plato’s allegory of the cave as it relates to the movie The Matrix.
The first kiss would come on our second date – after a six-hour heart-to-heart on Hitler and existentialism,
I’d take her in my arms and with total confidence – something I’ve never known – I’d kiss her.
A soft sigh would escape from her, letting me know that she had never been kissed like that before. On our wedding night we’d make love like Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.
After which, we’d lie in each other’s arms and watch PBS or Book TV, or some other intellectually stimulating program.
Aristotle says at the beginning of Metaphysics,
“We take delight in our senses – apart from their usefulness they are loved for their own sake and none more than the sense of sight.”
I am in love with the sight of Sophia.
