Here's the last of the Great Bears that I have & I admit to getting burnt out on reviewing them. There's "A Play Called FALSE!", an action poem called "Yes", the 1st comment made about him by his daughter Marcelle: "Papa il est Papa", a performance peice called "Five Ways to Prepare for a Space Trip" - wch begins w/:

"1 - undress.
shave your head.
put on a yellow dress.
sit on your heels.
after an indefinite time:
stand up.
remove the yellow dress.
get dressed again.
sit on your heels.
wait for your hair to grow back.
after an indefinite time:
don't wait any longer for your hair to grow back."

We're not exactly talking NASA here - maybe the Association for Autonomous Astronauts. Filliou seems like he was (is?) a fun guy. This seems to be the product of someone who grew up esp so he cd refine his childishness.
