Poems 18 & 19:
Lana Domax, poet from and in this time

Brain, ball, spiral, maze, fractal, fist. What would it look like to pry open the fist of Paris? I will interrupt almost any activity with the excuse of consulting the blue book: finding my way in and around the labyrinth, retracing my steps. Study of the centrifugal Metro: calculating the shortest distance between points.

Aldo Rossi: “The emergence of relations among things, more that the things themselves, always gives rise to new meanings.”

27 August. Arrive in Paris and begin to walk. Walk Through the Passage Jouffroy with J & B. Big, broken clocks, and a date: 1846. Jetlag adding to bell jar effect in head and ears, this in turn doubled by muffled, muted sounds of glassed-in arcade. For Aragon it is like being underwater: arcade as “human aquarium.”

“...the same voice of the seashells, the whole ocean in the Passage de l’Opera.”

Also: passage as “coffin.”
