Sonnet 85 -- So You Want to Be a Playwright?

Thought about a script brings me to action
Not lines, damn it, but the sounds of language
Even the rhymes in poems need traction
To somehow be an emotional bridge
The play is written within the pauses
To give audiences a chance to think
About emotional verbs and clauses
Also of  gestures and costumes of pink
Chekov one oh one for writing your graphs
Bring a gun on stage, it must be fired
Though a fake dead seagull makes many laughs
Anton’s scripts made me most inspired
His best advice will bring you to glory:
Every line must advance the story
