On the other side of words

Vidmante Jasukaityte

Shadows steal on the other side of words.

Gleaming reflections throb across bodies of bronze.

On the other side of words memory sleeps with open eyes

Like a spotted beast…

I sneak up quietly, tear off the eyelashes of the beast,

Like parchment, he’ll never close his eyes again.

I climb up stealthily

What is there in the pupils of the past?

There there deeper still… Further on… A little more, at least a couple more eras…

Further moremore moremore……… Mrrrrrmmmmrrrr… Sumerians on the surface! Dried clay, the first wall of paradise, the fottsteps of those driven out! Morrrre….

But what’s there there deeper still?.. When there was only sound?..

And only the souls of words.

Looking from the very essence, getting accustomed to the garments of sound…

Yes… I see them

I put on the feathers of meaning for size…

The souls of words descend into Palatals, Uvulars, Voiceless Stops…

Popping as voiced consonants and softly continuing a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a…

I see them…

The “shes” become “hes”” in the same way souls become bodies,

There A separates from B, and K from A

For language to be born, both sides will seek their other eternally,

For KA-Ba-La to be born

Syllables and diphthongs arise…

Verbal civilization, word populations, cultures of words begin,

Word spores, word seeds and word bacteria appear,

The proteins of sound mix with the nitrogen of consciousness,

Darkness dissolves in the light, and “In the Beginning was the Word” is born.

Before words,

After words,

On the other side of words, we and nature are the same thing.

Before nature,

After nature,

On the other side of nature, we are All,

Or: annihilation”

Ashes of soulless cloned words,

Extinct, as if we had never even been.
