It Is The Age of Cucumbers


Joseph Vasques

I've always said:
"A door that four people cannot open
a dog opens with the end
of its nose
and goes on its way..."
No one is surprised though.
It is the age of cucumbers.

A machine washes the linen,
a man does not find time
to wash himself.
In certain bald heads
there is everything but hair,
and humanity.

In the castles
are wood worms,
not sultans,
living like kings...
No one is surprised though.
It is the age of cucumbers.
