Mermaid's Song 3 - Poem by Michel Galiana

Closed, the idle mouth, harbouring a regret
As if dyking a flow, stands still and it contains
A stifling inferno in hairs and appeals set
In the stomach that is still denied, and refrains...

And a whole swaying side unfurls its haunting fan.
Then two white and slim hills soaring, at last the cry-
And the learned and happy mouth quietens down and smiles,
Foam of the secret that presses and ties and bends.

CHANT DE LA SIRENE 3

Close la bouche oisive où habite un regret
Comme un jet sourd et tu s'immobilise, cloue
Un brasier suffoquant par les crins et l'attrait
Du ventre à nul encore accessible, se tait...

Et tout un flanc ployé dit hantise une roue.
Puis l'essor de deux pics blancs et grêles, le cri-
Et s'apaise savante et heureuse et sourit,
Ecume du secrêt qui pèse, ploie et noue.
