We
are
as
embarrassing
as
Facebook.
We
are
desperate
as
a
blog. The
opera
is
delineated
by
the
movement
of
the
classes.
The
serfs
celebrating
the
harvest,
the
country
gentry
at
the
dance
and
finally
the
prince’s
reception
introducing
Eugene
to
the
aristocracy.
But
this
time
Lensky
doesn’t
die.
The
duel
never
takes
place,
Tatyana
never
writes
to
Onegin.
Her
heart
remains
unbroken.
The
music’s
still
pretty
good
though.
(the
TV
says
“From
dorm
life
to
apartment
living,
design
can
surprise
you!”) In
Arizona
Mr.
Wright
builds
another
monument
to
his
genius.
Taliesen
West
–
another
school
graduating
tons
of
semi-Wrights
(the
docent
says
“Mr.
Wright
is
still
very
big
in
Asia).
Must
have
been
something
in
the
‘50s
though
–
but
now
another
masterpiece
held
up
by
foundation
grants
and
sycophants.
(The
originators
no
longer
participate.
We
are
left
to
bounce
reasons
off
one
another
-
quivering
chins
leading:
"He
never
really
loved
us.
We
never
were
family."
Goddamn
geniuses) In
Kansas
City
none
of
the
students
has
yet
to
mention
the
war.
Their
performances
–
like
most
performances
–
are
about
performances.
They
are,
however,
interested
in
their
expression
and
that's
ok.
The
music’s
still
pretty
good
though. Everything
is
delineated
by
the
movement
of
classes. ‘“Recession?
What
recession?”
Barbara
Gladstone,
a
Chelsea
dealer,
said
jokingly
as
she
was
leaving
the
salesroom.’
