Words by Venus Khoury-Ghata In those days I know now words declaimed the wind besides pebbles, there were moons, but no lamps the stars would emerge later from a brawl between two flintstones I’ll tell you everything there were five pebbles one for each continent vast enough to contain a child of a different color So there were five children but no houses windows but no walls wind but no streets the first man wore a stone around his neck He made an arrangement with the first tree an oak if I remember correctly the one who got there first could drink up the ocean Language at that time was a straight line reserved for birds the letter “i” was the cleft of a female hummingbird “h” a ladder with one rung necessary to replace a charred sun before nightfall “o” a hole in the sole of the universe Unlike the consonants with their rough garments the vowels were naked all the weaver’s art consisted of humoring them in the evening they counted each other to make sure no one was missing in the rocky countries men slept without dreaming Translated by Marilyn Hacker HTTP Request Header * POST /rpc/ping HTTP/1.0 * User-Agent: YOUR AGENT HERE * Host: rpc.technorati.com * Content-Type: text/xml http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping * Content-length: 250 http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080 _______________________________________
