the new human

Gustaf Munch-Petersen: Naked Human

truth –

sparkling brains –

the crystal-clear, exposing thoughts

kill the stupid and dull

with painful scorn –


strength –

trembling muscles,

held tightened by iron-hard will,

way ahead of all others –

hear, the shouting of the mass!


dance –

whirling legs –

with slim necks and hips –

rhythm, you excite and ease –

see the smile of eros!


god –

blinding life –

you naked and stern but delightful,

light through skirts and dirt!

you give us everything –
