„On sait à peu près pourquoi une œuvre est mauvaise. Mais bien moins pourquoi elle est bonne.“

„Être libre, c'est dominer.“


„There is no love; there are only proofs of love.“

„DEPARTURE

The horizon slopes away

The days are longer
Trip

A heart hops in a cage
A bird sings
It is going to die
Another door is going to open
At the end of the corridor
Where a star
Begins to shine
A dark-haired woman
The lantern of the departing train

("Departure")“
The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

„[poems are] crystals deposited after the effervescent contact of the spirit with reality.

(cristaux deposes apres l'effervescent contact de l'esprit avec la realite)“
The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

„God exists only if adored
Time is nothing if one has not dreamed

("Painting")“
The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

„POST

Not a head stands out
A finger rises
Then it is the voice that one knows
A signal

a brief note

A man leaves
Up above a cloud that passes by
No one goes in
And the night keeps its secret“
The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

„ADIEU

The glimmer farther away than the head
The heart-skip
On the slope where the air rolls its voice
The spokes of the wheel
the sun in the rut
At the crossroads
near the embankment
a prayer
Some words that are not heard
Nearer the sky
And on its steps
the last square of light

("Adieu")“
The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

„I do not think, I note

(Je ne pense pas; je note)“
The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology
