You monastic clown,who wished to banish the bourgeois from art and disturb the hushed solemn whisperings of lofty art-loverswith music hall, cabaret and the circus.
You Dadaist,who refused to distinguish high from low art good taste from bad simple from incomprehensible ideas.
You patron saint,of a modern ideal, which is my homeland where I always wished to be: Utopia.
You navigator of time,salvage the soul of modernity destroyed by Fascism in your own chariot vanishing into eternity.
