FORTUNES attempt of exhaustion …
FORTUNES is the poetry of the documentary,
FORTUNES is the beauty of the way of the world,
FORTUNES I only see what I believe,
FORTUNES is a tribute to Desnos,
FORTUNES is because we always wanted to draw on the walls, FORTUNES is drawing, or photography, or performance, or nothing at all or what ever you want …
Come, say the English to the English, and the Englishman comes.
Como, said the stationmaster, and the traveler who comes to this city
get off the train with his suitcase in his hand.
Come, said the other, and he’s eating.
As, I say just like and everything is metamorphosed, marble in water,
the sky in orange, the wine in plain, the thread in six, the heart in pain, the fear in Seine.
But if the Englishman says as, it is his turn to see the world change shape to suit him. And I only see a single sign on a map
The ace of heart if it’s in February,
Ace of diamonds and ace of clover, misery in Flanders,
Ace of spades in the hands of the adventurers.
And if it pleases me to tell you,
Water pot, muslin and pumpkin.
What the Englishman says,
What does the stationmaster say,
thingamabob. tell the other,
And me too.
what’s his name.
.It is true that you do not care
That you do not understand the reason for this poem.
Poem, I ask you a little?
Poem? I ask you for a bit of jam,
Still a little leg of lamb,
Another glass of wine
To get us started …
Poem, I do not ask you what time it is.
Poem, I’m not asking you if your stepfather is hairy like a sapper.
Poem, I ask you a little …?
Poem, I do not ask you for alms,
I’m giving it to you.
Poem, I do not ask you what time it is, I give it to you.
Poem, I’m not asking you if you’re well,
this can be guessed.
Poem, poem, I ask you a little …
I ask you for a little gold to be happy with the one I love.
