Poor De Chirico - Natalie Merchant

Oh my dear friend
my dear friend Giorgio
how has this time Breton discouraged your liaison with
the I-styled metaphysical incongruous scenarios?

Dauntly jaunt about through nostalgic despair
within childlike renderings of a nightmarish recall

All my images fragments I've shored upon my ruins
pictor classicus sum (I am pure)

Step solemn with the air of reluctant haze
as rod and hoop shadow children scatter through a henna arcade
figures indentured to a windless landscape
enduring silence and flame

Da da da
no loyalty to the nonsensical
scorned their nihilist pageantry
