joseph beuys auto-correctly turns into joseph buys,
so here we go, meet beuys the shopper:

joseph buys rose.
joseph buys fat chair.
joseph buys dead hare.
joseph buys felt suit.
joseph buys felt angle.
joseph buys fat corner.
joseph buys 7000 oaks.
joseph buys sonne statt reagan.
joseph buys pregnant woman with swan.
joseph buys hearts of the revolutionaries.
joseph buys the reader.
joseph buys, we go this way.

friends and enemies

(stockhausen’s childhood)
the french were our enemies
and the english were our enemies
and the italians were our friends
and the spanish were the friends
and the japanese were the friends
and the russians were the friends
(but that changed a year later;
then the russians were enemies as well)
and the finnish were friends, etc.
I did not know what to do with this.

(childhood friends)
the russians were our enemies
and the americans were our friends
and the french were our friends
and the italians were our friends
and the british were our friends
and the communists were our enemies
and the capitalists were our friends
and we did not know what to do about it.

(adult enemies)
the americans are no longer our friends
and the russians are no longer our enemies
but the muslims are our enemies
and the immigrants are our enemies
and the terrorists are our enemies
and the gypsies are our enemies
and we do not know where it all will lead.
