without a passport --

Commentaire.

Haïku sur un schéma fréquent : les frontières n'existent pas pour les animaux. On retouve cette oppositions entre contrainte pour les humains et liberté pour les animaux dans plusieurs scènes célèbres dont notamment les dessins de yeux des oiseaux faits par des prisonniers chiliens aux visiteurs de la Croix-Rouge après le coup d'état au Chili. Archétype de la Liberté.
