Polka dots & mung beans, &
millions of dead fish floating
& coating kilometers of river.
Essentially they're all ingre-
dients, the type of thing you
keep in your kitchen cupboards

Subtlety or stupidity? I'm never

(after the paintings by Magritte)
Three paintings of a dog, all
different dogs but the same
one painted. All different names
but painted under the same
name. Somewhere I read that
this Loulou was black, but painted
white for the occasion. Narrow
nostrils, but supposedly had a
big heart. So loved by its child-
less owners that it traveled with
them everywhere, even to the
States, its right of passage paid
for by a promise to allow the fuse-
lage of one of the airline’s planes
to later carry a Magritte motif.
All things pass, including the in-
fluence of a civilizer. The livery
of the plane redone to reflect new
alliances. & of the other themed air-
craft, Tintin will be the next to go.
