new poetic attempt at Spoondeep


The Heart of (the?) Matter


There wavers the mark –

the sign, representation,

the relation to its referent,

in a shimmering package

like a thread or seam or




“to be”

implied in a neutral subject (object)

or reified verb-ally,

it substitutes,

stands in,

makes present,


re-presents (ad infinitum)

via the traces –

the text.

This is the mystery

at the heart of it,


That language represents


while we language

to represent.

Our present speech

always passing

with the texts of what’s dead

always present

here, and now.

N Filbert 2012
