Le Quartanier

Extrait :

Commence n'importe où.

Alarmes. Anneaux concentriques.

Miroirs tous aux angles. Des fragments s'agrègent. Amas.

L'écrivain après que ses mots sont morts.

"... après que la bombe est lâchée."

Silhouette esquissée sur le sol.

Le temps passe.

"Leur destin est de demeurer."

Sortie, suppression. Entaille sur plat de cuivre.

Que désignait un alphabète... Que condensait un index utopique...

Syntaxe effacée.

The World Narrowed to a Point

Liquor and love
when the mind is dull
focus the wit
on a world of form

The eye awakes
perfumes are defined
ride the quick ear

Liquor and love
rescue the cloudy sense
banish its despair
give it a home.
