the vagabond and the machine







Symmetric pathologies / strikethrough life and death / tads and dotard facing their suspicious candor and instinctual obscenity / cruel laughter / sardonic growling // no words / ignorance on the verge of Alzheimer / sneering with borborygmi / gobbling and snoring / slobbering / drooling through identical reflects in the mirror / a multitude of Janus double-face // projection / illusion / the escape from those two states of sarcasm / in the darkness of the street / man faces me to get the backlash of his creation / to articulate his ‘reason of being’ / time-break of god’s existence // the perpetuation of the scene of the crime, without hope / Pandora Box / and ‘you think it’s funny’…

(In the versions of Chełm and Prague, as well as in the Polish version of Brothers Grimm, Golem is inscribed with Hebrew words, such as the word emet (אמת, “truth” in Hebrew) written on its forehead… but being deactivated by removing the aleph (א), from “truth” to “death” (met מת =”dead”).
