Art Performance

Based on Chris Burden’s “Movie on the Way Down” (1973)

Balls and blood
come streaming down
a white rope, binding
two feet, stretching a
body with two hands
clutching a camera toward
the ground.

Bare nipples string out
on a thrusting chest.
Stressed knees cling to
each other; the neck and
head peel away, behind
elbows pointing to a camera.

A girl leans back against a wall,
hands dipping into a pocket.
A boy on a piano readies
a tune. Elsewhere, two cameras
take a picture.
