He wore a $670,000 wristwatch.

I’m amazed that’s even possible.

Ah, the 1913-14 Tango Craze,

alas,

I remember those days.

For those who could,

decadent dreams of uninhibited consumption…

Tango dance, Tango chocolate, Tango underwear.

Meanwhile workers and peasants are squeezed to death,

and our hero’s mother dies of consumption

(L’Autre).

In so many ways,

Art imitates life

and,

like a dog to vomit,

the sick society eats itself.

Selah.
