It truly is sure. an easy resolution. The present with out limits. The present is just to claim the identify or to name, and is still the single resolution she will have. every thing else will simply be questions. "I love love. " In love, there's love. From the chic, we arrive at anything that seizes us. yet is, colour : "Love is purple. " This little sentence is infantile and mystery. A French reminiscence may consider Rimbaud's use of colour. while colour starts to run loose within the feelings, in ardour, it inaugurates the main archaic libido. How does a colour play with the opposite and change it? We won't like having eco-friendly waft into the eyes, therefore have our eyes coloured with jealousy. back, I learn a stream from the interior to the skin. "My key's to have eco-friendly eyes and that nobody is familiar with. " We plow through purple and eco-friendly, throughout the colour of jealousy of the person who, within the textual content, implores. wishes, and cries. yet on the finish of the lament, the lament turns into track, and on the finish of the music, the phrases are carried off via the wind. there isn't any reappropriation, no incorporation yet this type of bold spacing of the physique, positioned past appropriation the place every little thing is carried off via wind and stream.

" And there has been a repercussion later: "(I) am speaking approximately nothingness. " on the finish of the textual content, the next utterance seems to be: "(I) am asserting love. " Nothingness and love will be positioned part by means of part. Clarice discovers herself asserting love, whatever that may be acknowledged in basic terms from the sting of nothingness. She surprises herself, announcing love, not anything that may be stated. yet love lines a border: "And on the fringe of love are we. " She makes a border with love. what's appealing is the verb within the plural: "are. " Love is one of those communion. The textual content ends with us. In a textual content the place there has been not anything yet dispersion and detachment on the finish, every little thing gathers in us. back, the Portuguese development places the topic on the finish: "At the border of affection are we. " it really is as though we got here out of include. Being elaborated from the start is that / is going towards we. this doesn't suggest that / has arrived. We is at the side, is the sting. we need to proceed. it's a vertiginous scenario. on the restrict lets imagine that this final act of transmutation is the trance of the / am to the we're: I-am-are-we. The strength of this article is signified through the ultimate we. Its middle will be positioned round the sentence: "It is towards my negative identify that i am going. " Then we depart back and we arrive at we. The verb of being, are, is a type of relaxation cease whereas in the course of the entire textual content, we leaped forward, carried off through the little sentence: "That is the place i am going.
