beckett schmeckett

An offering from Beckett via a penpal:

elles viennent
autres et pareilles
avec chacune c'est autre et c'est pareil
avec chacune l'absence d'amour est autre
avec chacune l'absence d'amour est pareil

Benoît, in Body-Scan, talks about l'omniprésence de l'absence while he drifts silently amidst the absence of all our dancing.

Billy Marchenski once told me that he thought love was just a matter of focus.

Beckett, who is up there for me with Sartre as an overrated ass, did manage also to say "Fail again, fail better".

(Again, I find myself quoting people I cannot stand. But at least, this time amidst people I love)
