P////AKTPOOL:

or a story that persists in the belly of another

part 1/3:

you should have become a cyclist/
like your father said/

(a sculpture-, and soundinstallation in the tower-annex of the exhibition space)

you should have become a cyclist/
like your father said/
and he/
this gildling/ 
this pigheaded devil/
heard it/ 
and was moved/
he mimicked it/
he learned its naked vowels/
he spoke it/ 
sang it/
shouted it/
although it’s meaning still escaped him/

(This is an assemblage of own text and a fragment of poem XI from ‘Preludes for Memnon’ by Conrad Aiken)
