THE GIRL-WITH-THE-DJ ALWAYS HAS FREE-DRINKS
Poetry + Collage x Cristina Patregnani
(a visionary dream – or a cabaret act – on the society of opulence)
Trockij was surely fallen on ideology / before he died
he became an hedonist//
R E C R E A T I O N A L is the final imperative
/ optionals do the rest: easier, faster, doubtless //
We’ve been raised in the visionary
Huxley Brothers Dream /believe it
or not/ Subdued to the logic of t e m p o r a r y
in permanent ageless obsessions.
“According to our post-Socratic era, the border
between the strong sense of propriety &
the very strong feeling of self-confidence
it’s naturally getting thinner and thinner”
mumbles Solgenitsin by the window
/ while / James Joyce rolls the dice
stakes are much higher for this time – the future
of Surrealism in fine arts.
In this multi scene space THE CHOICE it’s taken
Ho Chi Min had a plan / like everyone been raised
by a poor cook, he grew up very hungry.
I cannot believe my eyes when I heard a Mia Wallace eyed
girl postulating: “THE DARKEST ROAD TO COMPELLING
IS THEORY”. // She put out the cigarette, then.
Meanwhile a v o c a l i s t in my head / waving a neon Bible
in his hand: ////// Llllladies annnnnn’ GGGentlemeeeen
THIS ONE will screw your brains out!!
“it’s like reading Marx under drugs effects” – I said
or “like drinking a whole bottle of Mezcal
without eating the worm. “
