A la recherche du temps perdu











"And in that instant comes
the low echo
of a beyond beyond,
a language archaic and soaked
in syllables and accents suited
for re-de-trans-forming,
bringing light
which brings out
melanin
from beneath another skin:
the hollow of a voice
which speaks alone."
—  Pura López Colomé, from “Echo,” trans. Forrest Gander
