about

“Cosa Dici?” was an Italian dada poem originally written and performed by Rick Cuevas at the 1983 performance of GALERIE ZRU. For the performance, Rick dressed in a full-on Pope costume and recited the poem while embracing an attractive young woman.

For the 2010 edition, Andrew created a melancholy musical piece that provides the sonic backing for Rick’s absurdist Italian soliloquy.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Cuore di gomma, (heart of rubber)
Voglio morire (I want to die)
Ci sono delle mosche (there are flies...)
Nel mio tapetto (...in my throw-rug)
Siamo tutti formiche (we are all ants...)
Sulla viale delle balie (...on the avenue of the wet-nurses)
I pesci quadrati inutili (the unnecessary square fishes...)
Vogliano essere empii (...want to be unholy)
--
