For you are the one and the all

A new crush: Kelley O’Connor, mezzo soprano. Or is it for Frederico Garcia Lorca, as portrayed by Kelley O’Connor? Sexy and doomed—irresistible.

Should I revisit the issue of crushes, limning the differences among crushes (from afar, either to know the person or to know the work; for a character, fictional or portrayed; or up close, as a friend-crush or get-naked crush)?

Nah.  Given the uncertainties of this latest bout of sighing—for the girl? for the girl-who-portrays-the-boy? for the boy (who himself liked boys)? for the portrayal of the boy?—I’ll forsake the excavation in favor of play.

Queer affections: so much fun!
