Intelligence: Laurie Anderson (with Ai Wei Wei)  

amazing combination of insight with music and major international hookup - 
-so cool and right on! The complete concert at the Luminato Festival in Toronto 
May 29, 2013 featuring the queen of NYC performance art Laurie Anderson.

PLEASE NOTE that when you hit this link, there will be a ridiculously long pause.  BUT I figured it out.  Just put your cursor on the black progress bar at the bottom left. A circle will appear. Pull it a quarter inch to the right, and you'll be right into Laurie!!!

On Plumbing Following A Divorce

Plucked corroded
by her hand
the cold water faucet
handle turns useless
as a cartoon steering wheel
torn from its post.

She will not
absolutely will not
permit herself
to investigate
using a pair of pliers
(something like a pump handle)
and so admit now even
such a task as drawing water
has become a running backwards
to a time of women at the well,
a time before men,
a time of mothers.

Good, thanks. I was the interpreter for Laurie Anderson twice. An intelligent woman.
