Did Putin think He’d ‘Win’ the French Election?

I was playing with a screen shot of paintings of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump in a Moscow shop window.

It was from a November 9, 2016 article in the New York Times.

I thought the idealized ‘Trump’ in the painting was funny so I brightend
the image to get a better look.

The painting is a triptych.

Here, I made a little video of it.

We don’t need anyone to tell us what we can clearly see with our own eyes.

Is that “Marine” Le Pen?

lulls me
to heat:
waxy,
pointillist,

drooping.
She rises

In my eye

The Acquired Sanity of Death

I fought

for the

great

revolution

when the

poor will

come first

and

be safe

and

live like

the

happy trash

on TV–

but the

revolution

was

murdered

and

starved–

but I

escaped

into

loony bins

where

I took

pills and

acquired

the sanity

of

death.

First published in March 2017 as a status update, I decided to use the image for something else.
