Fast Day 332 October 19 2013 On Viewing Paintings By Jacques Villon

Nature Morte Aux Fleurs Jaunes

On Viewing Paintings By Jacques Villon

awful falafel needs pepper repair;
roll 'em over, gasping!
bang! the gun spoke words
like "Dada."

O, the bulbosity!  O, tool and die!
the bumpity ovoid
of dancing cam shaft's
teasing touch.

terra's on trial like lariat's calf:
cylinder fajita wraps;
scratching on blackboards;
teeth on edge.

wrap aroma and roman prawns asleep;
Van Gogh's repititions,
obsessive looks within
a golden eye.

I had this done last week while in D.C., then I lost it.
It was on a trip to the Phillips collections, where a show called Van Gogh's Repetitions was, consisting of Van Gogh's various renderings of the same subject, and a detailed discussion of how art curators and experts analyze them.

It was terribly obsessive, and I doubt Art can survive art experts and their technology.

Jacques Villon was the brother of Marcel Duchamp and Raymond Duchamp-Villon.

"Dada" refers to Dada... or the Dadaist Movement, if you are obsessive about Art terminology and history.
It's all Dada.
I wished the words to resemble the objects in Villon's paintings; I wished that they would extend linearly and I wished they would bend cylindrically...
