Underwear and Unicorn Body Suit – Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Rebbeca Horn

  • I didn’t get much sleep last night
    thinking about underwear
    Have you ever stopped to consider
    underwear in the abstract
    When you really dig into it
    some shocking problems are raised
    Underwear is something
    we all have to deal with
    Everyone wears
    some kind of underwear
    The Pope wears underwear I hope
    The Governor of Louisiana
    wears underwear
    I saw him on TV
    He must have had tight underwear
    He squirmed a lot (excerpt from Poetry Foundation)

    Happy birthday Lawrence Ferlinghetti!

    Rebecca Horn was born March 24, 1944, in Michelstadt, Germany. As a young girl, Horn read Johann Valentin Andreae’s Die chymische Hochzeit des Christian Rosenkreutz and Raymond Roussel’s Locus Solus, which cultivated the artist’s interest in alchemy, Surrealist machines, and the absurd.
