Love is Colder Than the Lake

Translated from the French by Sarah Riggs

L’amour est plus froid que le lac


consigner les coïncidences

    les angles les sons des étoiles

mortes encore visibles


nous par exemple



How in the wander: a held note

Story of O: they say it turned

Wander into that articulation: resonance

Say the times in which we are making: now

Reading the lines that enter heads: about other bodies

The time is out of joint: you’ve heard this before
