(Swans - November 19, 2007)  

Virgin turned around the Loved, where're you
your names my distance elusive veil
roaming I don't find wishing I don't find

Ce que j'aime dans ton visage c'est l'arrivée
I virgin found my sperm it fecundated me
light loving light
recuerdos superpuestos
night drew covered my wet hair
Bodhidharma says again: I don't know
Nothing would heal
sky hides stars then strips them

escrituras de luz
où nous sommes des otages de l'obscurité
Now close the windows and hush all the fields



A white home... "out of the garden with no word" (A. Achmatova). A sound... Mitleid, "between themselves the difference feeling was vanished" (Gottfried) because tat tvam asi (A. Schopenahuer), you're That One — take me like a seal. "Lily between thorns," has it stopped raining?, "the room of the woman who gave birth to you" (Song of Songs) opens the doors. What do you see? Stained glasses on blossomed pomegranates, copious waters. I don't know... but "I alone can feel you on these threads of memory" (A. Achmatova). One Seal on your heart, on your arm. What do you see? A white home... a green meadow, that pure white bed. Now, listen to the Silence of it.
