The future’s not our
I believe in the future
I don’t believe in miracles
Can it be true: it must be true! No doubt!
Life is going on as normally as ever
But suddenly something seems to have happened
Everybody seems to be staring in one direction
People seem to be frightened, even terrified
I want everybody to understand this
"This just in: we don’t have any, like, high school football or whatever to cover."

A winged skeleton bestows a kiss on the lips of a handsome young man: is it ecstasy on his face or resignation? Little wonder the sculpture elicits strong and varying responses from whoever gazes upon it.
