Midwest Opera
 
The local mogul, tall, horse-jawed,
machine-tool king,
accompanied by his grim chic wife,
strolls down the aisle,
strolls like a rolling monolith,
comes in like the tide
 
to watch
 
Scarpia’s treachery,
Carmen’s passion,
Tell’s bravery,
Chenier’s rage,
 
And then, waking up,
strolls up the aisle,
strolls like a rolling monolith,
goes out  like the tide.

(1994)
