plexiglass reliquary #2: the second page of a letter dated March 23, 1945, wherein Tennessee Williams describes the plot of a new play he’s been immersed in (tentatively titled, Blanche’s Chair in the Moon or The Moth). I love this document for two reasons–

I dearly relate to him trying to pitch to his agent this gorgeous, tragic play as something commercially appealing: “I know this is heavy stuff and I’m writing it with as much lyrical and comedy relief as possible.”

As a lover of Blanche DuBois, I laughed out loud reading: “There are at least three possible ends. One, Blanche simply leaves — with no destination. Two, goes mad. Three, throws herself in front of a train in the freight yards.”

I propose four: goes mad trying to market Streetcar Named Desire as comedy, throws self in front of train.

Opened the bedroom curtains to this gang, frolicking in magical sudden winter (70 degrees the afternoon prior). “Most auspicious!” said I, just moments before we lost power for the day.

It seemed we’d be the only ones, but eventually other snow-bravers appeared.

CitizenAlfonso

In the sunrise hours of January 19th, beneath a frigid sky sheltering Hudson Valley’s shorn and snowy vistas, the radio waves’ Kashmir spurring ever onward, this Italo-German manifest the tenacity, ingenuity, and can-do spirit of our nation’s foremothers and fathers as he charioted a trusty U-Haul cargo van to the New York State capital’s federal courthouse, and pledged his allegiance to the United States of America. I give you: Citizen Alfonso!

That the car was incased in a thick layer of ice that required a lengthy tea ceremony to simply gain access might have deterred lesser adventurers, but

we had a bookcase and Turkish-ish rug to procure for someone’s office, and like Billie, had our love to keep us warm.

So we crossed the Housatonic river into Connecticut and passed a rather fine day with many delights (some of them Turkish-ish) until

unlike Lady Day, our old lady did not weather the storm.
