Bernard Noël (1930-2021): State of Air

Bernard Noël

States of Air
tr. Charles Bernstein
                   
                       for Viera da Silva

we have just the view
the words of wind
this void the land

here the deepening reverses
self-regard
making us leap into our eyes

always the go-and-come
the viewed and the not viewed
the graphing of not there
on that which is there
