An unknown, rarely published writer who nevertheless sent shock waves into the 60s and 80s by constructing a text worthy of a great rhetoretician on the game of alliteration. Excessive alliteration with a double meaning disrupts language and communication. Dufrêne, a Letterist poet, is engaged in all the adventures of Nouveau Réalisme and action-poetry. Burlesque, hilarious, he troubles the function of language by puncturing its meaning. This poem published in the review Grammes in 1967 is now published 45 years later.
