Y así, del poco dormir y del mucho leer se le secó el cerebro, de manera que vino a perder el juicio.

Raoul Ubac, Portrait dans un miroir, 1937

Sur chaque visage, André Laude

Sur chaque visage
Une agonie m’interpelle
Lion en cage
Je tourne dans la cité des morts-vivants
Sans figure
Sans lignage.

Je suis déjà ailleurs autre part
Je suis dans le paysage ignoble
De l’absolu désespoir
Je suis le voyageur rejeté de miroir en miroir

Et qui hurle parce qu’il ne s’y retrouve pas
Et que l’horreur gonfle ses paupières
Et qu’il a tellement faim de lumière
Qu’il mangerait crus les petits enfants aux yeux
De craie blanche.

“A wind sprang high in the west, like a wave of unreasonable happiness, and tore eastward across England, trailing with it the frosty scent of forests and the cold intoxication of the sea. In a million holes and corners it refreshed a man like a flagon, and astonished him like a blow. In the inmost chambers of intricate and embowered houses it woke like a domestic explosion, littering the floor with some professor’s papers till they seemed as precious as fugitive, or blowing out the candle by which a boy read “Treasure Island” and wrapping him in roaring dark. But everywhere it bore drama into undramatic lives, and carried the trump of crisis across the world.”
