Balthus shows the way

In his prophetic watercolor from 1958,
Study for the Siesta, Balthus went be-
yond predicting Florida's exemption 
from government's new call for oil on
the beaches, as a periwinkle on the E-
lectoral College map. He foretold the
solution for the Leader's Easter melt-
down over caravans of aliens, swelling
California's voting rolls: suspension
from the vote count altogether, until
that bloated bladder can be purged of
evil brown tones. How the heartland,
swollen proud, disses pale wisteria of
tiresome New England, and rises on the
slop of fossil fuel's tumescent show.
does, of his next fantasia on our race.
