Barcelona Diary

The Body: Fundacio Joan Miro - An Exhibition

       The Body...that public riddle...pricked & pierced & pummeled /
behind glass...behind walls...behind bars...raped & flaunted / teased &
taunted //
       Disguised as rock / disguised as ash / disguised as death...
begs for bone / for flesh / for resurrection //
       His Body... Her Body...Our Body
our river / our myth / our private haunting... flares amber / green then
       blue
in this Barcelona dusk // 
       
These are her legs...splayed wide to show us all her gifts...his
frame bent back to strut his tattooed & tinted testicles // 
     
  These are the twins / two heads & one torso dancing  / a face floating
free / an anus stuffed with a string of pearls / a tongue slit to expose an eye
mouth & ear / mute & deaf by turn...arms framed like sitting ducks / legs
left...to run alone...
        & teeth & lips & hair & snot & jizz & spit . . . & blood . . .
               These Bodies . . . This Body /
                               His Body / Her Body /
                                                        Our Body . . . Their . . . Body
