Baby Carriage and Sleep-Sheep
by Asbjorn Lonvig,
carriage has been placed at Piazza della Rotondo in Rome.
The baby doesn't cry.
Not a sound.
In 1950 Pablo Picasso made the She-Goat in bronze.
She passed by and looked into the baby carriage.
The She-Goat laughed.
What might be in the baby carriage when it was not a baby?
Might it be one of the happy ghosts from the
huge Pantheon Church?
No, they could not stay that calm.
A Bedouin from Arabia
was sure it was a snake.
The Bedouin's camel and dromedary
talked about it, and they were sure
it was a snake, too.
However, a snake would have made some noise.
Rattling or so.
The Bedouin took a closer look.
A pair of legs?
A pair of sheep-legs.
Sleep-Sheep put on his coat.
And here is Sleep-Sheep on Piazza della Rotondo
in the middle of Rome
recovering from his nap number 7 this morning.
Sleep-Sheep has this rug
with 80 pictures of himself.
When he has counted 57 of them
he falls asleep
Even in a baby carriage.
