This Is Not Getting Old

Today's representative phrase from the New York Times arts section ("evocative puppet play") is as brief and evocative as an evocative puppet play. And now we fold it into our poem comprised of representative lines from the New York Times arts section: "A footman approached Ms. Minogue,/ who was fretting glamorously/ on a couch flanked by panther statues./ After some conversation and homemade sorbet,/ I watched a world of wonders unfold./ Bass was played, largely superfluously,/ by Mr. Brenner, evocative puppet/ play an unlikely mix/ of Shamballa and shoo-be-doo./ The crowd for the most part swayed/ in reverent silence."
