Description

I. D'HOMMAGE A DUCHAMP
The image is Marcel Duchamp's 1912 painting “Nude descending a staircase No. 2”. Kandyskin's subjective feelings are those of a striptease artist-bride before the cravings of a public-groom.

(Her pin-striped birthday suit)
[Her pain-stripped bierthday suit]
Felt silly,
Kandyskin felt silly [Was silly]
in her pain stripped [pin striped] birthday suit
asshe [as she] unstruck and dropped
her pinnup pose
you could hear a pinstriped peck of bidders
drop a peck of pickled deckers. Is this Rubicontinued.
(transcription of the text in the painting)
