Example text

So that when life, through the mouth of beings who receive suc­ cessively from it and for a rather short period the detritus, leads us to believe that it envies the indestructible solidity of the scene that it inhabits, in reality it assists in the continuous disintegration of this scene. And here is the unity that appears dramatic to it: it thinks confusedly that its support may one day fail it, while it itself feels eternally revivable. In a scene which has given up being moved, and thinks only of falling in ruins, life becomes anxious and agitated at being able only to revive.

W e’ll look at her together. I am sure I will not be afraid. Tell me, will this never happen? 9 I cannot have you with a doubt, she continues, with a lack of confidence. I should like to speak to you again of the sea. But the obstacle remains. The streams go forward; but not she. Listen, don’t be angry, I swear it to you, I wouldn’t dream of deceiving you.

Men some­ times will toss one of theirs listlessly away. 32 / FRANCIS PONGE But these last few objects, lost in disorder amidst a solitude broken into by dry grass, seawrack, old corks and all sorts of debris of human provisions,— imperturbable amid the strongest whirls of the atmosphere,— are mute spectators at the show of these forces that run blindly to the point of breathlessness chasing everything beyond all reason.
