recipe for a socially desirable animal
where and when? That is the question

A touch of the theatre of the absurd

sleep

eat

talk

cry


pants dry

pen wet

head clean

button your fly


in the hall

off the grass

off the hedge

smiling dry


keep left

keep right

keep chewing

mouth closed

keep off

wear shoes

watch a screen

always agree

play ball

keep a thigh


no entry

no exit

no turning

no burning

don't touch

don't budge

don't smudge

eat fudge

little Margaret Fry


diagnoal

fragonal

hexapentagonal

cheat your children

eat your father

kill your mother

shoot your brother

die

Mozart and Osiris
