(Swans - August 27, 2012)  

Viens me voir
Viens regarder mes changements
Mes mutations
Meine Verwandlung
though i'm always the same

Jedes mal deine Augen
like forges
they capture mine

Alons Viens me voir
en dansant dans tes azurs
et tes bleus Profonds
as deep as all skies ever
and the low wings
on the waves

(the spirit the soul the bride
do repeat it constantly)
Viens me voir entre Tanatos et Eros
and between any weaves and grids
de toutes mes pensées
come and weave
this pure blue cloth
mit mir

and look at all wires as outlines
and profiles
look at them carefully
merging themselves with your saliva
et ton sang
the two of us
don't exist any more
but only our One

Et encore reste en me regardant
Tandis que ich Verwandle mich
Weil ich immer im Werden bin
showing me to you
Um mich lieben zu lassen
without any more absence
Blaue worte
Parole bleue
Blue word
Parola blu

in another sea
where we still are alone
but together
one close to the other
spiritus et earth



Silvia Dello Russo was born in Parma in 1974. In 1995 she left for Germany, Halle an der Saale, at the "Martin Luther Universitaet," where she focused her studies on germanistic in terms of etymology, metric stylistic poetry, and glottology. In 1997 she started an innovative study on mitteleuropean languages at the University College of London, especially on a translation of the etymlanguage of Arno Schmidt in Zettels Traum.
