Dear Mister Cage: have you ever thought about setting up ‘a Guilded Estate” which could be called something like “Hut on Hudson” so that Nadia Boulanger and the Europeans might all come to study with you?
disassembled postage scale, like this but smaller, or perhaps a pharmacist's scale, or a, um, underground small businessman's scale. I don't know, I'm not a scale excerpt. In a box. With a small postcard coated in wax, on which was typed:
Directions: drop the ENTERED or a similar suitable weight onto the assembled scale.
You may consider the piece finished:
(a) before you have dropped the weight.
(b) after you have dropped the weight
( c ) after the scale has stopped moving altogether
after the weight has been dropped
(d ) before or after any of the above directions are performed or read.
( e ) any other.
