After Pablo Picasso’s The Bull, 1945
Broke things up with psychosis and wonders now Why I’m a magical realist. There’s something absurd about it Like the woman with an eye For a mouth. Bite down. Burst a vision. A blistering perspective. Once the infection’s gone. There’s not much use In trying to cure it. Slaughter the lamb And get out of it.
