‘Horror of the Void’ She dreams of the other side

Francis Picabia ‘Horror of the Void’ and ‘Final Song’

by

‘Horror of the Void’

She dreams of the other side

so as to create a memory

she thus gives herself ties

over frightening chasms

anxious she timidly brandishes

her hatred against the barbarian

she tries to be absentmindedly insolent

and gives men confidence

she is fit to be the elusive egoism’s mistress

but so what!

‘Final Song’

Guess what’s behind the blue hill:

a king in a wickerwork castle.

And behind the frail castle,

guess what there is.

By a pink tree,

a messenger talking to the moon.

Guess what’s behind the yellow moon:

a gnome made of wire

blowing into a wooden horn.

At the end of the horn, the soul of a bird

summoning the spring from which dreams drink;

dreams that sleep during the day!

Guess what’s behind the golden dreams:

a body of silk,

hair made of the shadow’s dust,

a mouth for arid thirst,

arms to hide my sadness.

Behind my dreams there is you.
