Clint Eastwood and Absurdist Theater


“the attempt to communicate
where no communication is
possible is merely simian
vulgarity, or horribly comic,
like the madness that holds
a conversation with the
furniture”—Samuel Beckett
Proust (1931)

Talk about Theater of the Absurd—
Who could give an impromptu speech
Addressed to an empty chair?

Better than Clint Eastwood—
During the Republican Convention
In Tampa back in August 2012?

A great Hollywood performance—
Worthy of Samuel Beckett who
Was laughing in the wings
