Well, composer. Stravinsky loved Scrabble. Someone said: 
how many points is Stravinsky worth? and I thought 
that this was perhaps a question that Stravinsky asked when 
he was playing Scrabble, but it was not. It could be 
the end of a beautiful movie about Stravinsky, 

but I imagine that anyone who loved Stravinsky would prefer 
to end the movie in a way that is more musical. Some people 
say poetry is music, and some people might say that Stravinsky asking 
about the worth of Stravinsky is poetry, still others might say 
“It really depends on the answer.” I don’t think so. I think it depends 

on what the question is - not what the words are, but what it is. What does 
this question remind you of? Since this is all about Stravinsky, I think it 
would be better to ask the question, and not answer it. And then think for a moment 
or two. Finish the movie with poetry which is a question a nice question

One that reminds you of flowers, not Stravinsky 
but still
that’s exactly who 
this question is
