Tejal Shah: Back to front I

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

It was a first for both of us. I sensed your difference, your queerness. You had never dared to cross-dress in front of anyone and I had not yet been exposed to anything trans-. When it was dark and silent, hidden from the eyes of the world, you’d transform. Huddled at the back of your father’s shop, I watched in awe and wonder. You feared the streets, both full and empty. Finally, we walked out together.

Sampurna Chattarji: Descending

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Trampoline: In which the line I bounce off from is – “To descend into yourself means discovering subversion” (Edmond Jabès, The Little Book of Unexpected Subversion) – tucked away in a response to Nils’ text


“Descending into light is dangerous.

On the surface I am all skin.”


At the top of the morning is a mountain.

She climbs it.

One morning, she discovers it is inside her.


“Or what I mean, perhaps, is all light.

It’s my sister who is good with words.”


She feels vertical, and rock-steady.

It is on the way down

that she slopes, falls, flattens.


“Sis, you dwell in the front of the tongue.

What do you know about what lies underneath?”


The next morning, there is nothing to walk towards.

Only movement can still

that demon – speed. Run, she tells herself.


“And what if, Sis, at the core of all this light,

there is nothing?

Just a hollow, silent, drum?”

Bootsbau (Fragmente I)

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Ich komme dich besuchen
der mond ist untergegangen
am ende des tages
wanderten wir langsam
wir hörten das geräusch eines bootsbaus.
Liebesgesang der Nacht.


Gibt es morgen eine Seeschlacht oder eine Schneeschlacht?

Ad Deleuzes Auseinandersetzung mit Aristoteles. Wie auch immer:
Nein, wir machen nicht mit,
weder zur See noch im Schnee.
nein, nein.

Ein Mensch wird überfahren, ein Brot gezeichnet, das sind

doch nicht Ereignisse (allein), jedenfalls nicht in der Rezeption Whiteheads von Deleuze in “Die Falte”.
Was ist eigentlich ein Whitehead, ein Weisskopf? Ein Schweizer im Schnee?

wir machen nicht länger mit.
nicht länger mit,
nicht länger mit …
