Sing of the Eternal Moment

A monologue from the play by Mora V. Harris

Arugula (16 year old alien who looks like a human)

Since her arrival on Earth, Arugula has struggled to fit in with the adolescent Humans she has been forced among.

After her first roller derby bout leads to an unexpected sexual encounter with her super-cool teammate Bruise, Arugula has a big realization and almost blows her cover.

Do you ever feel like…like you’re this alien being, who just ended up here on Earth with all these humans but you don’t really belong?

And you’re always asking yourself, like, “Am I doing this, right?” Like you’ll be in the audience at a show and you clap because the Humans are clapping, but you’re also thinking, Is this right?

Is this how people clap?” and that’s like a simple thing. Talking to people is even worse. You never know what to say. You ‘re never ready with your beverage order.

You think people think your Dad is weird but you don’t know why. You answer machines you’re not supposed to answer and people look at you.

But then, sometimes, every once in a while, finally, some one thing will click into place.

You have this one supercharged burst of understanding that makes like a hundred other little

things make sense because you suddenly realize, “Oh, I’m a lesbian alien” And like, at least you figured that out.
