Sans titre by Vítězslav Nezval, 1934

(via rrosehobart, funeral)




I heard the secrets in a kiss
the words around it circling like a line of colored butterflies
saw thousands of bacteria
in a sick man’s body
& every one of them looked like a spiky chestnut
like a cosmos making war
with a skin of scaly armor

I saw a human break free from his dying comrades
in the pit of history that has no bottom

— Vítězslav Nezval, The Seventh Chant (1924)

from the book Abeceda/Alphabet
written by Vitĕzslav Nezval and illustrated with Karel Teige’s photographs of dancer Milca Mayerova,1926
Karel Teige remarks ‘In Nezval’s Abeceda, a cycle of rhymes based on the shapes of letters, I tried to create a “typofoto” of a purely abstract and poetic nature, setting into graphic poetry what Nezval set into verbal poetry in his verse, both being poems evoking the magic signs of the alphabet’
[must see:some of his surreal collages, more@ queering]
