Joan Brossa

I walked into a room once and found a collection of chairs set up for a chamber ensemble. A music stand was placed before each seat. But instead of instruments waiting for their musicians to return, machine guns were leisurely resting in their spots. It was a visual poem by the Catalan artist Joan Brossa. I was just thinking about that piece this morning and had to laugh. He was magic.
