performance art can be deadly...


'Candaules, King of Lydia, Shews his Wife by Stealth to Gyges,
One of his Ministers, as She Goes to Bed'
by William Etty, 1830









PERFORMANCE ART CAN BE DEADLY

throughout history 
Herodotus said to thee 
when a vagina doth ascend 
especially with ability and talent 
the fourth wall kingdoms 
come a tumbling down

we do not have to rise 
said the magi 
at the feast 
of their slaughters 
we gave thou seed 
you gave us daughters
