The unknown is an abstraction; the known, a desert; but what is half-known, half-seen, is the perfect breeding ground for desire and hallucination.

You become a visage where the mirror fades out and you

More ardent than our voices in this trace of time

Become the voice of the hunter hearing you.

Edouard Glissant, trans. Mary Ann Caws

Let me be as streamlined as my knife when I say this.

—Robyn Schiff (“Silverware by J.A. Henckels,” from the great great bk Revolver)
