THE IDLER RETURNS
(for Steve Kleptar and Mike Dockins)
How long before a dream gets old? An infant’s scent, the latest trend? When is the year no longer new? Oh, months and months before its end. - Robert Wexelblatt, "Newness"
Youth with limbs akimbo, reincarnation of Li Bo. A trio of sun-brellas stand as guardians, offer no interference
as he re-begins. This time, we see him at his dawn, too young yet to be drunk; today he's diving into the reflection
of the sun. The lake's embrace entices and awaits him. Li Po dreams his dream anew; he knows that some dreams do come
true if you don't rub them out of your eyes. This life, he's starting early.
