III. Mixings and Apparitions

 

copper rain! this deformed and confused joy provokes the soul…

all full of demons…

the winners of the useless dreaming: Diogenes, Hermia,

Eutalius, Priscianus, Isidorus, conic sections… Simplicius,

Diophantus’ equations… vain presumptions…

curdled milk

it doesn’t show off, and for that reason it shines

 

toasted wheat

it doesn’t affirm itself, and for that reason manifest itself

 

sour honey

it doesn’t boast, and for that reason it succeeds

 

…and so, taking advantage from what it is, I use what it is not,

in truth, certainly and without any doubt…

 

the irony…

the contemplation, it is here, …it is my jump…

 

…the art of  the balance, it guides myself only, hidden and nameless,

announcing monstrous beasts’ loves: coupling of green lizards with swans…

clamors, in which all the beasts scream with an unspeakable fear of eternity…

for myself only, it guides me to the evidence of each instant, of each thought…

slow, heavy, till the flame of the origin… to the invention of the code

slow, heavy, chronic, leaden… without thinking, in the fire’s stench…

catastrophe’s silence…

 

the purest fire…

…and the sea…the fire…

a door! which will detach you from everything!
