Oh, my dear friend, my dear friend Giorgio
How has this time Breton discouraged your liaison with
The I-styled metaphysical incongruous scenarios

Dauntly jaunt about through nostalgic despair
Within childlike renderings of a nightmarish recall
And all my images, fragments I've shored upon my ruins
Pictor classicus sum, I am pure

Oh, my dear friend, my dear friend Giorgio
How has this time Breton discouraged your liaison with
The I-styled metaphysical incongruous scenarios

Step solemn with the air of reluctant haze
As rod and hoop shadow children scatter through a henna arcade
Figures indentured to a windless landscape
Enduring silence and flame

Da da da
No loyalty to the nonsensical
Scorned their nihilist pageantry

Dauntly jaunt about through nostalgic despair
Within childlike renderings of a nightmarish recall
And all my images, fragments I've shored upon my ruins
Pictor classicus sum, I am pure
