By Christophe Langlois

Épaisseur.

Je dis que je n’y vois pas plus clair que les autres /
que le nimbe n’est pas sur moi /
que le paradis ne scintille pas à ma porte /
une journée peut être un puits sans fond d’avoir répété les mêmes sentiments les mêmes mots /
si l’escalier dévie toujours après nous dans l’ombre /
si l. a. maison se dresse encore dans notre dos /
c’est que nous n’étions pas au bout du chemin.

Le prime recueil de ce poète fait entendre une voix juste et de haute exigence qui invite au calme et à l. a. méditation.
