Based on the first of a three-poem set by Michaël Glück. Dedicated to and about Vincent van Gogh.


I-L’Oreille coupée

L’Amour est dans ce linge ma mie dans ce linge sanglant
qu’au lavoir vous portez
dans ce linge où il dort
linge humide et foetus que vous allez noyer
Mon oreille est un miroir et j’ai trop sangloté
et mes mains sont brulés et mes yeux sont crevés
Vous predrez le battoir
pour frapper dans l”eau cliare nos linges fatigués
Mon Oreille coupée pése lourd in vos mains et let mots sont blessés à l’épreuve des jours
Nous saignons tous les deux

I-Severed Ear

Our love is like old cloth like the bloody fabric that you take and wash like a newborn baby that you drown
My ear is a mirror
and I am too bloody
and my hands are burning and my eyes are bursting
You wash the worn fabric of our love
beating it in the clear water
My severed ear
weighs heavy in your hands
your painful words
making the days more unbearable
How we both bleed


from Fallen Sparrow, released May 23, 2006
