Two videopoems: Tanya Huntington


[ Español ]
Svensk version: Petronella Zetterlund


(Till Sabina Berman)

Och är det möjligt att skriva en dikt
utan en man i dess centrum,
i dess kärna: utan hans närvaro eller blick?

En dikt i vilken träd faller i skogen
utan någon därpå påföljande reflektion 
kring ljudet som hörs, eller inte hörs.
