“How bold one gets when one is sure of being loved.”

– Sigmund Freud 









XIX. For Francis Picabia



The powerhouse in ruins,


he wrote his name in blood.


What could be done about those


self-important voices in his head?


“Mon sang est un chemin de fer…!” 


His heart pounding,


he broke the fuses & the gauge.


He was silent all the way back.


Would they ever believe him?












Hans Richter –  Filmstudie (1926)
