THE ROBBE-GRILLET EXPRESS:
A TICKET TO RIDE

TO SEE ON A PAGE
TO SEE ON A SCREEN
A SIMULTANEOUS REALITY LACKING THE NEED FOR
HIERARCHY OR HISTORY TO CHART A COURSE
A MATERIAL REALITY (AS SUCH) CONSITUTING A
COHERET CONCEPTION OF TIME WITHIN A PLACE

A NON METAPHORICAL REALITY
WITH THE OBVIATION OF EMPATHY
WITH ALL POSSIBILITIES
WITH ALL ASPIRATIONS
WITH ALL DESTINATIONS

STANDING ON 42ND STREET AT MIDNIGHT
A COPY OF CAHIERS DU CINEMA & A FRENCH-ENGLISH
DICTIONARY IN HAND
TIME & SPACE AS IT IS BECAME A REALITY
WITH THE ERASERS & THE VOYEUR AS A GUIDE
IT BECAME POSSIBLE TO BE IN THE GARDEN
WITHOUT HAVING TO IDENTIFY WITH ADAM
OR WITH EVE

LIFE WITHOUT A MORAL REFERENCE ANSWERED
THE PARADOX OF WHAT HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN
PRESENTED AS EXISTENTIAL FREEDOM:
THE KILLING OF A STRANGER
DEATH WAS NO LONGER A NECESSITY FOR LIFE

WHAT IS SET UPON THE TABLE SITS UPON THE TABLE
BECAME SUFFICIENT TO MAINTAIN A SEMBLANCE
OF DIGNITY
A PLACE WHERE IN FACT I WAS NO LONGER
NECESSARY

IT IS SUFFICIENT
