Aetna


To the elements it came from
Everything will return.
Our bodies to earth,
Our blood to water,
Heat to fire,
Breath to air.

Empedocles

the story



And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain,
 To tell my story. 
The rest is silence. 


Hamlet

library forest


And several times, said Austerlitz, birds which had lost their way in the library forest flew into the mirror images of the trees in the reading room, said Austerlitz, I thought at length about the way in which such unforeseen accidents, the fall of a single creature to its death when diverted from its natural path, or the recurrent symptoms of paralysis affecting the electronic data retrieval system, relate to the Cartesian overall plan of the Bibliotheque Nationale, and I came to the conclusion that in any project we design and develop, the size and degree of complexity of the information and control systems inscribe in it are the crucial factors, so that the all-embracing and absolute perfection of the concept can in practice coincide, indeed ultimately must coincide, with its chronic dysfunction and constitutional instability.

necessary condition for an image


daily grind



And as they say, the incident is closed/ The daily grind has wrecked the love boat

inside

the sun is out
but...
out of me, for alas,
when it warms me 
and i see it,
its no longer,
inside me

ombre


Quel enthousiasme d'une ombre pour un fantôme

P. Valery

Glazunoviana


 The man with the red hat 
And the polar bear, is he here too? 
The window giving on shade, 
Is that here too? 
And all the little helps, 
My initials in the sky, 
The hay of an arctic summer night? 

The bear
Drops dead in sight of the window.
Lovely tribes have just moved to the north.
In the flickering evening the martins grow denser.
Rivers of wings surround us and vast tribulation. 

John Ashbery

Stone walls and chains do not make a prison
