a modern
lovers are ground
to hamburger
wives are turned into chairs
TV sets eat people
flowers grow from

by the instrument
of their desire

Startling, irreverent and provocative, the incomparable creator of poems and fables for children turns his eye and pen upon the social calamities and absurdities of the adult world.
