Disks ping-pong across the floor* while Polar Bears dance on steel stilts* and the teacher in a JFK suit* tells his failing pupils all is well. All is well.
All isn’t well in the theatre, though.* All is tight, worried and sad. Foreboding.* The clock’s ticks annoy the voyeurs* who stand in nervous circles, smoking.
The patient may not have the year.* The doctors may not have the room.* The semester may be out of quarters* before the class learns to add and subtract.
