La secte de la souris volante

C. Girard, 2006

Opening on Saturday, May 26, 2007, 5 pm

There is an insect
On a branch
The branch is in my head

Yes it is in my head
I drilled a hole
In my skull and I inserted the branch
A beetle came and walked through my skull
On the branch
The beetle is sad and crying and
Her tears fill a pond in my brain
In the grey jelly of my brain there is now
A pond with goldfishes and waterlilies

They swim
The water is salty
They swim through the beetle’s tears
The goldfishes are my dreams
