Les Amants

In Magritte’s painting Les Amants a man and a woman are kissing. But it can’t be much fun because they have cloths over their heads so they can’t see each other. I know two lovers who could not see each other correctly. They kissed a lot but what they saw was not really the other person. It was a person each one had made up. This made them unhappy but they couldn’t stop doing it. They had to make each other up.
