(Swans - April 8, 2013)  

what for Montale was the danger
of "words' multilinguistical cocktail put
into the shaker and then remelted,"
is for me the only possible way of expression,
je cherche de brèves paroles archétypes,
de sons anciens et lointains,
qui me rammènent dans
des terres et des temps passés,
je les cherche pour les croiser
par des mots quotidiens et ce
voyage se réalise (jusqu'à quand
l'horreur ne nous submerge encore)
dans le silence enchantment
des paroles-choses

i feel the desire to collect these unshaped notes
weil ich sie mit wem ist mir nah mitteilen will
everything has been said, but some fragment
is still to be said newly again en le redecouvrant
en le rendant vif pour notre vie
