List of Things That Can Be Useful to a Poet*
Things that can be spoken clearly
Thing lost in the Sahara Desert
Things that don’t mean a damn thing
Things that are more exquisite than others
Things that look honest beyond any doubt
Things that are on a pedestal
Things that give you hope
Things that are better than they look
Things that look like they have come to an end
Things that are buried underground
Things that should be plucked today
Things that are unbelievable
Things that are in surplus in the universe
Things whose majesty is sublime
Things that ought to make you cry
Things that are useless
Things whose loneliness is scary
Things that look like flowers but are not
Things full of holes
Things without detours
Things that make you fall asleep
Things that refuse to be apprehended
Things that pretend to be things
* CONCERNING THE POEM EVERYONE HAS WRITTEN: Everyone has written a poem at one time or another but nobody knows why still everybody has written at least one poem during one's lifetime and so on and so on blah blah blah... [not to be continued]
pour faire rire.
pour couper court.
pour ainsi dire.
prendre la lune avec les dents.
