Il ne faut pas voir la réalité telle que je suis, 1923

Max Ernst



If you knew what I now know


and have been through


you would not throw


away a relationship so easily.



I fell for you


I thought maybe you did for me too


this was not my first mistake


it will not be my last.



I wanted to gather you close


in an embrace that defies poetry or prose


you shrugged me off with curious arguments


I am now haplessly awaiting my next debacle.


A Virgin Not
