Visual Poetry in "Art in America," Part 3

via Bob Grumman's po-X-cetera:

The piece by Doogan is fully a visual poem, in my view. It shows an O with its "latch" in the down position to prevent the virgin from having sex. The O thus become a G--which goes on to spell "GO" (or "escape," "move," "start," "live.") over the second woman's vagina, with its latch back up.
