Duet for a solo performer

The mask: china dolls.

The corners: a place to meet Pierot

             the subtlety of someone else’s voice: Yours always,

Baby-doll, with these same words: the Other.

 

Your voice in your light-lips,

the stillness of a made-up face,

the ambiguousness of someone who listens to his own rumours:

the seeming perfection of a

bilingual version.
