Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts


As Picasso did it, the eyes

bigger than the head, it extends

for the spectator

the primitive bodies

Les Demoiselles,

I saw it with my wife

in the summer of 1991,

New York in suspension

below of the heat’s humidity,

lively and intact in a recurring wave

of air, the soul

establishes itself

in the girls of the Calle d'Avignon.

Hello Joao. I liked this poem since I read the first time. The Museum of Modern Art have so rich collection of arts, including Les demoiselles d'Avignon and some others great arts by Picasso.
