Treasure Island

Atef Ayadi


But


but
and battle,
bitter,
and bottle,

bat
and bottom
butts
batman,
and batmen

are not good
for
a good
conversation.

I am sure
you have an idea
what a good conversation is?

no buts
and bottoms.


think thread and threads

continuous breath in depth
and at the surface.

no interruption
or
it is a
simple
or a complexe
complete
but.

so, stop there,
take your time,
and talk about that
but.
