living on borrowed time


viola with azure's song borrowers

the viola attempts subterranean holocaust
all our time is borrowed
all our time is lived by an other
the face, levinas, is never our own
the face into our interior of damaged roots
but the viola attempts nothing
the face attempts, face cries out
borrows, this face, this other
unalive, this face, this other
of approach to the high note, high tower
of approach, delay of approach
the small house inside our skin, beneath
the higher note, the higher tower
"look, it's this way"
always already, preparation for holocaust
always already, holocaust
unalive, this name, this same
these names, peoples, these unalive


wa, space, time, period
waa, canoe
(Judd, The Hawaiian Language, 1912)
