Francis Picabia

PLEASURE

Pleasure keeps its own
council
and ignores
what is happening
behind it's back

INTERPRETATION

Whenever I come across
morality
I seek out instinct
INSTINCT

Morality is a means
of living off others for
others
PETRIFIED LIFE

What a petrified life we
lead!
yet my intention
is not to feel
ill enough
to feel ill
