La cité des ermites, par Jerome Karsenti, architecte. Mon père est parti en laissant une chaise et son dictionnaire Robert, lorsque j’avais 5 ans. J’ai fait tirer dedans avec un 9 mm parabellum. La balle s’est écrasée à l’intérieur. L’encre du dictionnaire par l’impact s’est dissoute. Il est le livre blanc sur lequel j’ai écrit cet enchaî- nement de matières. Poutresse est le gilet pare balles qui me protège : le livre de la digestion. Il abrite la suite, mon précieux, le livre des cathédrales, le toucher : ANT. Je regarde par la pupille, désillée par l’impact : Le Tracé des cils. Le livre action a une voix, celle de l’opéra : Alysse. Le dictionnaire Le Robert intégré à La Grande Éclopedie, est devenu : Cru d’idées, un fragment de Poutresse. Équinoxes de l’impudeur est ma crypte depuis laquelle je rêvHers.

The City of Hermits, by Jerome Karsenti, architect. My father left a chair and his Le Robert dictionary when I was 5 years old. I shot it with a 9 mm Parabellum. The bullet was crushed inside; the ink of the dictionary dissolved from the impact. It is in this blank book I have written the subsequent chain of events. Poutresse is my bulletproof vest, which protects me: the book of digestion. It houses the rest, my valuables, the book of cathedrals, the touch, ANT. I look through the pupil, trace of the impact: the Trace of eyelashes. The action book has a voice, that of the opera: Alysse.
The dictionary Le Robert is integrated into La Grande Éclopedie, it has become: Cru d'idées, a fragment of Poutresse. Equinox of Shamelessness is the crypt from which I dream.
