Geometrical Concepts


geometrical concepts
Or whatever their field of perception
Grow closures
Primarily on attempt
To fight out transcendentalism
Husserl doth try
The reduction out there
And the concept concocted
Are conflictual
And yet linearal
Each in its own way
The scientific
And the religious positions
In conflict
This is what Derrida discovers
Despite the metaphysics of presence
That informs Husserl's writings
Astruggle between the noetic
And the noemic
Or between the semiotic
And the symbolic
As with Julia Kristeva
In a direct line of descent
From Lacan
Or Freud's unconscious
Or Jacobson's difference
Between metaphor and metonymy
Or Barthes' or Saussure's
Tension betwween the signifier
And the signified

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.
