...Preamble



A rough draft

for an ars poetica



.  .  .  .  .  .  .



Let's get our dreams unstuck



The grain of rye

free from the prattle of grass

et loin de arbres orateurs



I



plant



it



It     will sprout





But forget about

the rustic festivities



For the explosive word

falls harmlessly

eternal through

the compact generations



and except for you



                 nothing

                 denotates



its sweet-scented dynamite



Greetings

I discard eloquence

the empty sail

and the swollen sail

which cause the ship

to lose her course



My ink nicks

and there



and there



                  and there



and

there



sleeps

deep poetry



The mirror-paneled wardrobe

washing down ice-floes

the little eskimo girl



dreaming

in a heap

of moist negroes

her nose was

            flattened

against the window-pane

of dreary Christmases



A white bear

adorned with chromatic moire



dries himself in the midnight sun



Liners



The huge luxury item



Slowly founders

all its lights aglow



and so

sinks the evening-dress ball

into the thousand mirrors

of the palace hotel



And now

it is I



the thin Columbus of phenomena

alone

in the front

of a mirror-paneled wardrobe

full of linen

and locking with a key



The obstinate miner

of the void

exploits

his fertile mine



the potential in the rough

glitters        there

mingling with its white rock



    Oh

    princess of the mad sleep

listen to my horn

         and my pack of hounds



I deliver you

from the forest

where we came upon the spell



Here we are

by the pen

one with the other

wedded

on the page



Isles          sobs of Ariadne



Ariadnes

        dragging   along

     Aridnes          seals



for I betray you my fair stanzas

to

run and awaken

elsewhere



I plan no architecture



Simply

deaf

like you       Beethoven



blind

like you

Homer

numberless old man



born everywhere



I elaborate

in the prairies of inner

silence



and the work of the mission

and the poem of the work

and the stanza of the poem

and the group of the stanza

and the words of the group

and the letters of the word

and        the least

loop of the letters



it's your foot

of attentive satin

that I place in position

pink

tightrope walker

sucked up by the void



to the left         to the right

the god gives a shake

and I walk

towards the other side

       with infinite precaution
