 the final curtain on one of the longest running
musicals ever, some people claim to have
seen it over one hundred times.
I saw it on the tv news, that final curtain: flowers, cheers, tears, a thunderous accolade.
I have not seen this particular musical but I know if I had that I wouldn't have been able to bear it, it would have sickened me.
trust me on this, the world and its peoples and its artful entertainment has done very little for me, only to me.
still, let them enjoy one another, it will keep them from my door and for this, my own thunderous accolade.
from The Olympia Review - 1994
