The Demanding Wife

Get me to Chicago
for A Sunday on La Grande Jatte

Take me to Chicago
—to the island— for Seurat

If we can’t transport to '84
if you won’t fly me to Grand Paris, then

drive me to Chicago
to the Institute of Art—

the museum in Chicago, for
A Sunday with Seurat
 

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Russell

displayed at the Chazen Museum, Madison, WI

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Russell
moved to Wisconsin from out East
over a century ago, but find themselves
still together and happy
after all these years
