Comments: Both formally and as far as the contents are concerned, this poem presents an avantgarde, synoptic rhythm. As in the Futuristic verses of Velimir Chlebnikov, here everyday things become alive. The dance and the metamorphoses of the furniture remain logically unmotivated; they are the product of a new, volatile perception.
