CHILDHOOD

CHILDHOOD’S     END

Victor & Rolf of Amsterdam  made  20

beastly dolls   Human hair & porcelain

skin     Walking mini-zombies

 

The tiny blonde & blue-eyed girl  stomps

upon my foot   Her mother buys her candy      Open my lolly   now !

I know she is    alive    doll eyes   all aglow

 

On CNN last night they asked: Do you

think the photos of the Sandyhook  20

splayed out on their gymnasium floor

will further   gun control legislation ?

 

Somehow there is a connection  between

the macabre taxidermic trolls    and the

bullet-ridden children    Others will have

a more benevolent take     no doubt  –

And I have made an image of the monster here

The noise of war in its head  a babe laugh in its belly    

Allen Ginsberg Lysergic Acid   1959

 

 

Spring 2013    Victor&Rolf  Dolls    Luminato Festival    ROM

    Remember that art imitates life, for better or worse! It is still man’s inhumanity to man that I won’t accept.
