Duchamp In America

Duchamp In America

Tertullian who had Tacitus
notes that in the Holy of Holies
at Jerusalem great Pompey
for all his perscrutiny saw:

nihil simulacri

Did you then in Philadelphia
view solely mummified artifacts fluted
in a room that smelled of

It is all by design:
as rose crystal in a pawn shop window
thoroughly exercised by dawn
broadcasts radioactive
to some other earth.
