          SECOND VERSION OF THE IMAGINARY

 

                          when nothing disappears into it

          neutrality

                          indifferent depth                  nothing is affirmed, it inclines

                          the intimacy

                                                          menacing nearness

                          next to the infinite

                                                          a reflection. We believe

          the absence

          an interval

          to open another day

                                                          pushed forwards

                                                          pure

                                                          transparent

                                                                          unformed

                                                                          passivity

          makes us submit

          everything falls back

                                          awakening

                                                          then we imagine

                                                          that distancing

          appearing as something that has disappeared

                                                          again touches

                                                          the reflection

                                                                          disembodied
