Alfred Jarry: Le homard et la boîte de corned-beef

A l f r e d   J a r r y
(1873-1907)

 

Le homard et la boîte de corned-beef que portait
le docteur Faustroll en sautoir

Fable
Une boîte de corned-beef, enchaînée comme une lorgnette,
Vit passer un homard qui lui ressemblait fraternellement.
Il se cuirassait d’une carapace dure
Sur laquelle était écrit à l’intérieur, comme elle, il était sans arêtes,
(Boneless and economical) ;
Et sous sa queue repliée
Il cachait vraisemblablement une clé destinée à l’ouvrir.
Frappé d’amour, le corned-beef sédentaire
Déclara à la petite boîte automobile de conserves vivante
Que si elle consentait à s’acclimater,
Près de lui, aux devantures terrestres,
Elle serait décorée de plusieurs médailles d’or.
