Duchamp's mystery

He is famous.

No doubt about it.

He led the artists of his time to one of the greatest revolutions of all

He changed the whole idea of art, of what it is

And yet, was he actually laughing at his private joke?

Laughing at those who followed him, believing they were following a new belief.

Laughing that he had us all fooled, us who took his word.

If it is true that it was all a lie,

Would it make a difference?
