Poems directly counter imagination
walk, symptoms though “works of art”
assumed but the spirit, outraged nevertheless
in a realm of evenings
we had found Marcel Duchamp
logical circumstances of minds of men
photographs truly sumptuous for their destructive activity
protested against Tzara’s activities
organized spirit intentionally.
A new and brilliant form over the execution
the medium of Paris abandoned
suddenly a dinner jacket, a word
anti-militaristic and searching,
shame and filth today,
Since disoriented in their metaphysical formula
fabrication of a legal paper
permits abandoned art, collapsible sculpture
anarchic, motor-driven King and Queen
reduced to two screens,
sometimes contemporary mores and mockery.
