art is fart. yoko ono.

I attended a couple of the events at the Yoko Ono curated Meltdown Festival at the Royal Festival Hall, London in Summer 2013.

I came across this piece displayed on a pillar inside the venue. My immediate thought was that
it had to be a clever parody posted by some joker...

When I made a second trip to the venue, while the festival was still running, the piece had disappeared. I was certain it had to have been a joke, and it had since been removed....

But no! I had a look in Ono's book Grapefruit - and yes! its a genuine "poem"!?!

Now I'm more confused. Did she intend to be taken seriously? Was it intended as a joke? Is she a comic writer that's escaped notice? Why was it removed?
