I usually use something like

for this.

And using this approach, you can even hide the fact that you are creating locals:

local input = [[
function (cpu)
  logger.debug("RLC %s")
  cpu.%s = RLC(cpu, cpu.%s)
  cpu.PC = (cpu.PC + 2) & 0xffff

... somewhere in your code, this can be "ugly" with as many "local" variables as you want:
local s = [[local logger, RLC = ...\n]] .. input
local f = assert(load(s, s, "t", {}))(logger, RLC)
