Trois couleurs après les films de Krzysztof Kieślowski Bleu Fermer vos yeux Aller sans ‘Moi’ Blanc Là Même lutte De votre cœur Rouge (Clan)destin Aux autres/ Au temps perdu ? Three colors after the films of Krzysztof Kieślowski Blue To close your eyes Go without ‘Me’ White There Same struggle Of your heart Red (Clan)destine For others/ For lost time?
Another Balloon The car swerved a little and a hand outstretched from the passenger’s seat window let go of held ribbon A voice cried out repeatedly it’s floating away and indeed it was, beyond the darkness of the live oak boughs, a slow pirouette in a sliver of silver light The rear lights glared red and the front wheels assumed a turn of indecision, the bare arm wilting out in the open air The car stopped to park before starting up again for it was far too high up by now, fast becoming absorbed into the deep blue twilight The arm withdrew within the vehicle kept circling the lot until it was out of sight then returned the way it had come in
