Distant Spectacle

"The principle is to go into everything wanting to like it." —Nico Muhly

move the action downstage
never mind the curtain
it is a distant spectacle
success is what you make it

afterwards you have gone to bed
get up and dress for the party

two minutes after six "Idomeneo"
the prospect of a drive
possibly unpleasant sensations
and a welcome lunch

the thread is oneself
joined to one other
