Le temps des oiseaux

"J'aime le plancher des vaches."
– Gustave Courbet

Breakfast
Lunch
Supper

A bird on the log, a ball of wool, a hole.

I dream of forests
and of a big hairy eye
an all-seeing sun eye
hairy like a vulva
shining on the decapitated countryside
flinging its rays
great brown lubricated eyelashes.

Breakfast
Lunch
Supper

There’s a machine
the bird rests on a branch
the landscape is motionless
the ball of wool unravels
the hole still ambiguous.

The machine awaits us
lubricated
ready to cut.

The lumberjack’s having supper
an early supper
resinous sandwiches on a blue background.

Codeine blue background
chewing up intoxicated clouds
paranoid clouds

that don’t exist.

- C. Girard
