marcel duchamp stopped by


marcel duchamp stopped by
to borrow some sugar
and a little paprika
“just a pinch,” he said
“hardly any, really, a soupçon
i narrowed my eyes in suspicion
i asked for his opinion on gun control
“i have no opinion,” he said
“you want de gaulle for that
you have asked the wrong dead frenchman”
this kind of thing is happening to me
all the time
so many things i need to know
and me with the
wrong dead frenchman
i should have said
don’t be so cavalier
it is a wise child that
knows its own dada

—Don Whittington
