(Swans - September 9, 2013)  

"ne pas chercher à comprendre"
because "hier ist kein warum,"
they said to primo levi,
death arranges for spaces of broken bodies...
"and yes I said yes" james-molly said;
but inside the unending and distorted error
of a fallen humanity, is it possible
également to say oui à la vie?

dire sì alla vita
to say yes to life
decir que sì a la vida
zindagi ko swaagat karna

jeene ki taraf jaana
ins leben



Hindi translation by TP Sabitha; "jeene ki taraf jaana" means "to go to the life."

Spanish translation by Olga Milazzo.
