The first is the large red one; everything spins in a circle as if one had too much to drink.

The second is the large green one; one arrives, one treads here. A shoe, and on it sits a foot.

The third are the unhappy fruits, which hang there totally plump and young, but, nevertheless, they are, inedible like the mushroom’s red and white cap.

The fourth is the same as the third – only seemingly larger, longer, hairier.

The fifth—a face—is green and red, and therefore it’s the bridge, that spans from one corner to the other.

The sixth doesn’t vary much. One holds, one supports, one shows someone the way.

And finally, the seventh is the journey, horizons which are shifting. Everyone says, I know this, I’ve been there, I’ve seen that before.
