the juggler

Five ball extraordinaire
no sharp knives no smoking torches
no fishnet flammable stockings, Love
no small terrified animals
fine print local code

Boomerang orbits beyond footlights
exit ticket booth trajectory
pigeon feather return
scalping tall pinze-nez men
fainting ladies hand to breast

The Times review!
birdcage trapdoor Arts section
yawning soggy cereal one inch column
third row tomato critic

oil on canvas: Red Spot II (1921)
~Wassily Kandinsky (1896-1944)

This is a fine example of how a human mind can juggle more than what a juggler is capable of juggling.

Very imaginative.
