-I-

Mon rêve indien survole la surface de l’entre nous. C’est nuit de lune, d’un noir à rêver, proche de la colline.

De l’eau, en silence, coule sur ta joue. Une fontaine fraîche,
une rumeur, à moins qu’un souvenir… Je ne sais pas.

J’en fais la récolte pour calmer ma brûlure. Le mouvement se fait lent. Je pause ma main sur le sommet de ta tête. Tu ne dis rien. Tu fais danse de nuit. Ton corps reprend souffle.

Nous en aurons bu des paroles muettes depuis toutes ces années. Nos rendez-vous de chair se sont installés par hasard, il y a loin, au pied de cette cime.

Nous redescendrons demain, comme toujours, nous redescendons. Au matin, la plaine sera faiblement éclairée par un astre qui nous est désormais familier.

-II-

Pendant ce temps, dans une capitale européenne, un homme seul corrige à la nuit les dernières epreuves de son roman à venir ; ce livre autofictionnel pour lequel il redoute tant la force des vagues.

Il coupe le mot, taille la phrase, soigne la ponctuation d’un
geste d’une précision chirurgicale. Comme si cela pouvait changer quelque chose…

La fatigue le gagne chaque nuit un peu plus. Il se lève de son bureau, ouvre grand la fenêtre, fume une cigarette sans envie. L’air est glacial.

Le square, en bas de chez lui, a disparu, laissant place à une vaste plaine faiblement éclairée par un astre qu’il ne connaît pas. De l’eau, en silence, coule sur sa joue.

English:

-I-

My Indian dream is flying over the space. Full moon, black night for dreaming, near the hill.

Water is running down your cheek in silence. A fresh
spring, murmuring - or some memory... I do not know.

I collect it to soothe my burn. The motion is slowing
down. I put my hand on the top of your head.
You keep silent. A dark dance with
the night. Your body catches its breath.

So many silent words will we have drunk for all those
years. Far from now, our carnal rendezvous were arranged casually, at the foot of the hill.

Tomorrow we will go down. As we usually do. In the morning the plain will be dimly lit by a star we now well know.

-II-

In the meantime, at night, a man alone in some European capital is proofreading the manuscripts of his novel-to-come; this auto fiction for which he fears the strength of the waves so much.

He trims every single word, polishes every sentence, being
careful about punctuation with surgical precision. As though this could change something...

He is getting tired and tired night after night. He stands up, goes past his desk and opens a wide window, smokes without feeling. The air is freezing.

Down his house there's no more square; instead lies a dim, vast plain lit by a star he doesn't know.
Water is running down his cheek in silence.

"My Indian dream is flying over the space. Full moon, black night for dreaming, near the hill."

This line is perfect for me. I can see that we like similar things. Okay, I have something like that behind the window...This photo is a genius really. Probably I will never leave from the admiration for your photographs.

That is such a nice thing to say dear :) I'm glad you like this work, it's a collaboration from three people, I made the lower image, zoroastre did the upper image and cyril made the text.
We can do something together if you like. You seem to like diptychs so we should make one together sometime. Let me know what you think of it ;)

I'm so glad that you like my stuff though I haven't done much new lately, i got hundreds on the harddisc though but it's time for something new. I'd love making something together with you.
I made another good one but I had to delete it. Have you got msn? it's easier to send photos to eachother.

I think that we can altogether something create but not much I know as. However exquisitely a fact that something like that can come into existence pleases me.
