Example text

I searched everywhere for this created poetry, without relation to the external world, and, when at times I believed I had found it, I soon realized that it was merely my lack of knowledge of the language which had made me see it where it was totally lacking or simply existed in small fragments, as in my earlier books of 19 13 and 19 15. Have you noticed the special power, the near-creative sense that pervades the poetry written in a language you are just beginning to utter? You find fantastic poems which just a year later make you smile.

There are signs in the sky. The near-poets of today are very interesting, but their interests do not interest me. The wind points my flute toward the future. ] from Manifestos, 1925 6 Horizon Carre Square Horizon ! ] 13 COW-BOY V ^ * w ^ 1 i j s c i j m LiputiU Sur le Far West ou il y a une seule lime Le Cok Boy chante a rompre la nuit Et son cigare est une etoile filante SON POULAIN F E R R E D ’AI LES N'A /AMAJS EU D E PANNE Et lui la tete contre les genoux danse mi Cake Waik New York a quelques kilomteres Dans les gratte-ciels Les ascenseurs montent comme des thermom£tres Et pr£s du Niagara qui a 6teint ma pipe Je regarde les Voiles £clabouss6es Le Cow Boy sur une corde & violon Traverse POhio Vincente H U ID OBRO Reproduced from Tristan Tzara’s Dada 3, Zurich, 19 18 , woodcut by Hans Arp.
