Not enough left to make sure a swan stays
a swan until the end of the last act.
New strings need new arrangements, better bows,
a whole eveningyou weren’t dreaming.
A progression of swan to court lady
requires a peasant girl in between.
Calculator, to me these things you show:
a calculator act requires a show
not a new lady dreaming between stays.
