18. The Head

 

The guillotine is the masterpiece of plastic art

Its click

Creates perpetual motion

Everyone knows Christopher Columbusís egg

Which was a flat egg, a settled egg, the egg of an inventor

Archipenkoís sculpture is the first ovoidal egg

Kept in intense equilibrium

Like an immobile top

On its lively point

Speed

It leaves off

Multicolored waves

Zones of color

And turns in depth

Nude.

New.

Complete.

 

July 1914.
