Misophonia (extract)

Misophonia (extract)

 

Why do you let yourself be eaten up like this?

Like so much chew toy, like so much waste product.

You castle bitch, you ivory tower, you carving, 

you statue, you ICON. You, Jadis of Charn. 

You, Song of Susannah. You red-headed twins.

You are to be feared. More than that, 

you are to be loved. Open your eyes! 

Remember who you are, and float.

Misophonie (extrait)

 

Pourquoi te laisses-tu dévorer comme ça ?

Comme un jouet à mâcher, comme un déchet.

Toi la gardienne du château, la tour d’ivoire, la sculpture,

la statue, toi l’ICÔNE. Toi, Jadis de Charn.

Toi, la Chanson de Susannah. Toi, la jumelle rousse.

Tu dois être crainte. Mais plus encore,

tu dois être aimée. Ouvre les yeux !

Rappelle-toi qui tu es et flotte.

Misofonie (fragment)

 

Waarom laat je je zo opvreten?

Als een kauwspeeltje, als een afvalproduct.

Jij kasteelkreng, jij ivoren toren, jij sculptuur,

jij standbeeld, jij ICOON. Jij, Jadis van Charn.

Jij, lied van Susannah. Jij roodharige tweeling.

Jij moet gevreesd worden. Meer dan dat,

jij moet geliefd worden. Open je ogen!

Onthoud wie je bent en zweef…
