“There is a gap in art history, the absent point of view of the object of the gaze. . . . ” – Deborah de Robertis

“A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.”  — Orson Welles

Paul Celan / Language Mesh (Sprachgitter)

LANGUAGE MESH

Eye’s roundness between the bars.

Vibratile monad eyelid
propels itself upward,
releases a glance.

Iris, swimmer, dreamless and dreary:
the sky, heart-grey, must be near.

Athwart, in the iron holder,
the smoking splinter.
By its sense of light
you divine the soul.

(If I were like you. If you were like me.
Did we not stand
under one trade wind?
We are strangers.)

The flagstones. On them,
close to each other, the two
heart-grey puddles:
two
mouthsfull of silence.
