How do flowers conjure
a song for the butterflies
another for the bees?
If winter breaks
does spring wake from slumber?
I try to imagine
what Marcel Duchamp is thinking
while playing chess during his honeymoon,
an apparition descending on a staircase?
note: I have not seen the original art works of Marcel Duchamp in a museum but I am fascinated by his ideas about art. He is
also an avid chess player and a very good player.
