Sampurna Chattarji: Words from a Literary soliloquy*

Inside the rock – instability

That is what the luminants show

Diatronic – the electric devil

If one word must be eternally avoided

Let it be “sand”


Can place be suspicious?

Imagine so

Poet in static

The travelling wire

Form of conveyance

Chinese whispers

From mouth

To fear



Birds have bled all over his face

Hands with holding

The body

Still a form

Than can be spoken




* Literary soliloquy by and with Nils Röller. Astrid Nischkauer does not ask questions, Astrid Nischkauer „Literarisches Selbstgespräch von und mit Nils Röller“ in Fixpoetry 18.6. 2020
