Bombergís poem celebrated the experience of watching the Ballet Russes perform:
Methodic discord startles....
Insistent snatchings drag fancy from space,
Fluttering white hands beat - compel. Reason concedes.
Impressions crowding collide with movement round us -
- the curtain falls - the created illusion escapes.
The mind clamped fast captures only a fragment, for new illusion.
