fighting against time We live in hell and heaven joined together so we must suffer and love There was really nothing to be hoped for outside that place, that time, that destiny One would never penetrate the defences of the unknown, never get away from this old earth Everything there was was there You had to play and move about and think without stopping, with all your delirious and contradictory powers You had to go on with the adventure once begun, without wanting to, torn to pieces by doing so You had to give each thing its name, and sign each move and event with all the hatred and all the love you were capable of How were you to say you were happy, at that moment, on that part of the earth, with that woman, with yourself, and with everything else It wasn t easy to say, and yet you had to say it You had to forget the fatal issue, pain, decay, the minute but effective assaults of time You had to forget the void, the being abandoned, the being alone, and live out your own adventure with joy Nothing counted anybut this explosion of life, an explosion beautiful and unique Out of the long night, opaque, insensible, there issued now this ball of fireluminous than a million suns, shut up inside the body and blazing there The glare is harsh, it hurts, it flays, but the pain is also the greatest of pleasures it is the power of life There were so many things to believe, so many things to love, hate, touch, drink, look at, feel, understand, listen to, judge, suffer, hope There was so much fear, so much evil, gentleness, noise or cold From farthest time or space this wealth had come to Chancelade, a man among men, an inhabitant of this planet, and had changed him into a bomb Everything was there, present, palpable It called forthan words, it called for shouting, for howling at other people at the top of your voice in the street Maybe they wouldn t have understood, but that s what you ought to have done open your mouth and yell as loud as you could at three o clock in the afternoon with the veins standing out on your neck and temples burstingIn the dusty street a dog sleeps in the sun with its mouth open, amid a forest of human legs That is a poem The rain drips down on the roofs, windscreen wipers moan back and forth A curved poem, based on the earth, a poem with a living womb Starving children look up with bloodshot eyes like stupid jewels in their great dwarfs heads A poem transparent and immediate, deep as the wind, airy as light, huge as the great dirty lake Or a toothless old woman leans against the wall and stares uncomprehendingly A soldier kneels in the mud, and the blood runs slowly from his mouth It is always the same unwritten poem, the story that is hummed under the breath, or dreamed Everywhere around me, and around you too, everyone reads these strange yet close words, they write them with their gestures, and mark them down with their bodies and their desires On the closed book, closed or almost closed, the tide of the world breaks and pounds unceasingly What is inside it matters less, after all, than what is outside What is one day s reading in a lifetime What is one line of writing among all the endless scribbling that fills the world There is not just one word, one sun, one civilization There are millions of things everywhere Isn t the poem there, or there, or in your eye, the eye of the beholder
