This variation of the Bird's thoughts serie takes up the reference to Rimbaud's poem “L'alchimie du verbe” that was already present in Work n°113 : Hold on (Une saison en enfer), (2015). It applies the transformation of materials that the poet evokes. The principle of pigeon droppings, that were until now creating on the ground messages mocking the injunctions of our contemporain society, is reproduced with heated tin that is dropped melted on the ground. The shape produced by the fall is then casted into silver and vermeil.

The game around objects fetichism and the need to acquire signs of wealth establishes a contrast between the preciosity of jewelry and the prosaic gesture of pigeons dropping their excrements, which this work reproduces. All of that evoking with humour through the title the song of Snoop Dogg “Drop it like it's hot”, illustrating in a crude way the image of birds defecating.
