Le poème que Joanna Klink n'a pas écrit

For it is not we who "know" ; it is rather a certain condition 
     in which we happen to be , that "knows".

Whatever the landscape had of meaning appears to have 

     been abandoned,
unless the road is holding it back, in the interior
where we cannot see.

Love the World - and stay inside it.

Now let us issue from the darkness of solitude.

Les quatre exergues des recueils de Joanna Klink, dans leur ordre de parution :
