We have the chance:

in French, we have two words

very beautiful, and, first, quite parallel:

light writing, it is photography,

and the writing of the Earth, we call the geography.

But tell me, how, so far, we wrote the Earth?

Drew on passages

or the borders defined?

We open paths,

or closed doors?

We wrote

the Earth as

a prison

Against the roads and railways, the gates and the walls were multiplied.

And travel and adventure and infinity is disapproval gradually within the borders.

How many wars has been raised by introducing these limits no truce and no end

that the principle of the ownership trace and moves according to the forces and powers?

Then

now

What is important

What is responsible

It is to rewrite the Earth

to write constantly to write endless

a thousand passages that laugh of the walls.

A-t-on tracé des passages

ou défini des frontières ?

A-t-on ouvert des voies,

ou refermé des portes ?

Nous avons écrit

la terre comme

une prison

Contre les routes et les chemins, on a multiplié les barrières et les murailles.

Et le voyage et l’aventure et l’infini s’engluent peu à peu dans les frontières.

Combien de guerres a-t-on déclenché en instaurant ces limites sans trêve ni fin

que le principe de la propriété trace et déplace au gré des forces et des puissances ?

Alors

désormais

ce qui importe,

ce qui nous incombe

c’est de réécrire la terre

d’écrire sans cesse d’écrire sans fin
