D'Amico adds, "Callas's 'faults' were in the voice and not in the singer; they are, so to speak, faults of departure but not of arrival.
Callas was quoted as saying that comparing her with Tebaldi was like "comparing Champagne with Cognac."

#30: Choke

Went to work at seven and almost forgot my dream wherein you died!
It was an awful dream, I slept too hard and deep to get out fast.
From underneath an awning, a mother informed me, and I ignored her
And insubordinated, unblinking because enraged, and not until
In a wrapped couch hearing it from the right person did I go on from it.

Stores were closed for Sunday, so I walked more and more hungrily.
At work guests came and left per pleasure and asked for late check outs
And extra Keurig pods (:a way of institutionalizing a social expectation).

The dream lingered two hours and nourished no background.
