Rocking Chair: Oh! Yoko

Michael Lydon, Fusion, April 1972

YOKO ONO smiles from her recent album cover (fly) with great compassion. Her face is heavy, peasant-like. She is looking out through a sheet of clear plastic; brilliant reflected highlights partially obscure her eyes. There is a throw-away coffee cup in a bottom corner. It says "fly yoko ono" on it. On the backside her feet suggest bamboo and brothels.
