Unidentified Jean Fautrier Painting

a person composed of particles and tactile sensations

his skull is packed with branches small branches

in his head snap

a bird flies from his temple

an extending neck

a slug crawling along his backbone

a flying grasshopper

a stick

a sunflower

a forehead

a puddle on the sole of the foot

insects in space

people melted in furnaces in Auschwitz

grass turning pal
