I Should Like... (A New Design Of Life) - Poem by daubmir nadir
I should like to refound and create difficulties for everything in me and in front of me. A new design of life.
A roving design for a loving contact, while computerized design expands to infinity the nirvana of its own cold brain.
A human walk in a void of goods and metropolises. I should like a map referring to my activity, not, however, in terms of technologies, or of the forms of creative accomplishment, or of the commercial success of my didactic work.
Even if I thought the generational problem was overcome, I should need not to conform.
I should like to shrug everything off, even the holds that most reassure me, that are my momentary salvation.
I should like to intuit the epoch about to be born, I should like it to be different from the present one. Because today people's souls are closed in defence of an involution that seems to accept, but in fact excludes, the diverse and the novel. That's the source of my lambasting: Man, so Davincian and yet so misspent.
But I should like to meet myself again within the millennial flux of the applied arts.
I should like to discard the monumental aggression of so many words.
One of my most certain points is the attitude towards the uncertain and the weak, towards exposure to the discomfort of the unknown.
After so much rule of logic, I should like types of approach which are stratified, magical, emotional. You know, yes, you know…
I should like to renounce the certainty of the joyous and amoral language, and pursue ancient and tortuous paths, to find objects from beyond my brief time, in a distant vision of the past, present and future.
I should like to think that the slightest movements made by my objects and by my logorrheic fragments were as acupuncture in the body of a mistaken context.
I should like to live a project of availability that led to new, calm, poetical, delicate objectives, suitable for the stages on which the new people will reveal the rituals and the fantasies of a near future - alive, but destined to die.
I should like to set off again, as I often did and do, on another ideational adventure, alone or in company, to search the darkness of 'challenge' for a fascinating unknown risk, hidden more within me than without.
I should like to be an ancestral and amorous person, to formulate the hyper-moralistic idea of an anti-wordly Concept, I should like my Concept to be capable of absorbing hunger, violence and poverty.
I should think of Giotto or of Kierkegaard, of the maternal womb or of kitsch, of shamans or of Islam, of the wind or of miniaturization, of artists or of the desperate, of religion or of incommunicability.
No more teachers, not for you not for me.
I should like to make clear to myself that the new type of epoch calls for a different person, capable of superimposing the two opposites; telematic solitude and existential dispersion.
I should stake also my personal perdition, my credibility, my isolation, even the impossibility of return... For a perfect moment of Love.
Then not all would be lost.
