Kjell Espmark: 'Under mina avbrutna studier'



During my interrupted studies

of Liang Qichao’s essayistics

it struck me that I’ve wanted to live

exactly like a Chinese text –

signs that wish to know nothing about tense,

number or personal voice

but that cannot be inflected either.

I would like to have been texted on parchment

so as, after a time in the light,

to be scraped off for a new essay.
