Tempestuous Times

Like Ariel
Delivering thunderbolts from the sky
America.

Like Caliban
If they could only see themselves...
The Taliban.

The Town Intellectual
('a little learning is a dangerous thing')



It is the 'found' poetry idea only audio;
Snippets of dialogue-
He cuts from radio, TV.
Splices them together (as the Artist)
To own and treasure.

'A narrative to my life' is what he says.
Connected to his life.
But they are not his words.
So he has a typescript for actors to use.
So utterly confused.

It really is madness I said one day,
A plea to return to reality.
But that's something he can entertain,
Because all ideas are the same,
Even to madness.
