Sample text

Je suis vivant, je tiens le cap, j'existe encore. 41 CLAUDE ESTEBAN LV You're too far away. I no longer hear your voice within the jonquil's yellow murmur. I listen closer. I sham sleeping, almost touching ground. You loved all the children's games, so long ago, remember? You hid yourself. You turned into a butterfly, a bee. You flew away. You came to drink upon my eyelids. Do you still want me as a playmate? You withdraw. I will come again. I will look for your tomorrow, every day. LVI Earth of all the dead, mother always near and watchful, you ascend the roots again, with winter.

A block of cold. You ignore it, you who pass too rapidly. You live all around it. Your eyes take hold of the submissive contours. The sun will blind you. It will foil your plans, your promises. You will rot in hay, beside your fruits. You will come back to the earth which you despise. You will be this bit of frost enduring in a hole. LI Three books on a table. For a long time now, the written words have slept. They fought against the night of objects. Silence won. The room is endless from no longer knowing.

Chasse, chasse l'orgueil des anciens jours. Voici qu'une soif unique nous traverse. L'ombre est en feu. Les dents se mordent dans nos ventres. Nous crions. Nous ne savons plus. CLAUDE ESTEBAN 25 XXXI It is not I who dies. It is the fragile mound of cells. Too much spoiled flesh that the body's sack can't vomit. Vengeance of the innards, swarms of tiny beings, when I shall be in shadows, you will be alive. The garden, far away from me, simple, healthy. XXXII Do not add more flowers to the flowers.
