la voix nous précède

l'écho précède la voix


le visage nous précède
l'ombre précède le visage

la poésie nous précède
ensablée
plus nous voulons la lire
plus elle s'ensable  

 

***

 

the voice is ahead of us
the echo ahead of the voice

the face is ahead of us
the shadow ahead of the face
the more we want to read it

the more it gets sanded up

Translation: Sabine Huynh

הקול הולך לפנינו

ההד מקדים את הקול

הפנים הולכות לפנינו

הצל מקדים

השיר קודם לנו

הוא כל יכול

ככל שרוצים לקרוא

הוא מתכסה בחול

***

 

de stem gaat vooraf aan ons

de echo vooraf aan de stem

 

het gelaat gaat vooraf aan ons

de schaduw vooraf aan het gelaat

 

poëzie gaat vooraf aan ons

verzand

hoe meer we haar willen lezen

hoe meer ze verzandt

Vertaling: Sarah Nigot
