15. The opera

Your rhinoceros will want to view you
as stoic but dominant
and may watch you during Dido’s                    Lament.
Remain composed. Wear gold.

AUTHOR'S NOTE:

“15 Places to Take Your Rhinoceros: A Gentleman’s Guide” is one result of an interest I’ve developed in conflating disparate images and forms in small spaces. You may also take your rhinoceros to the watering-hole, to your cousin’s wedding, or to see the marching band.
