metamorphosis of man, canvas, bird and egg, hung in the gallery where everything is auctioned

metamorphosis of man, canvas, bird and egg, hung in the gallery where everything is auctioned

we start with the bird
and the egg then move on to paint
and magritte
who speaks of the whole
of the dreg we
start with the bird and the egg
crack shell
wing arm
until they beg
as oubliette we begin
to eat we
start
with the bird and the egg
then move on to paint and magritte
