i returned to the “scene” yesterday:
“just because you can doesn’t mean you should.”
Merce Cunningham, inert in a wheelchair, and troupe
were there too—videotaping,
dance as incomprehensible as its surroundings.
the sign on the velvet rope read (and I paraphrase):
...should you be caught in the gaze of the camera,
thereby seeing (and being seen), sign your release...
i emphatically disagreed with indelible thoughts;
not likely, even the gorilla girls, noticed.
