The Vice of Surrealism

Philippe Soupault:

"Les Chansons des buts et des rois" (Songs of the Aims and the Kings) If the world were a cake if the sea were black ink and if trees were all street lamps what would be left for us to drink? Mr. Mirror the old-clothes man dies yesterday night in Paris it is night it is dark it's a dark night in Paris I buy a gun so much the better I kill a bystander so much the better I sell my gun Thank you Philippe Soupault in his bed born Monday baptized Tuesday married Wednesday sick Thursday dying Friday dead Saturday buried Sunday that's the life of Philippe Soupault
Philippe Soupault, Litterature, no. 19, May 1921
