A moth on the windowpane, the moth
also made of silence, synthetic
and paradigmatic. A tiny drop of rain on the wings.
Horizontal wings at restů Phenomenologically
little space between the moth & my gaze;
feathery antennae; silence; a portion of a curtain
which is also a portion of truth. And then the moth starts

its nocturnal activity. In fact, when its wings
flutter, the moth will show you a world devoid of

silence. While gazing at the wings, routine is cast
aside. The tiny drop of rain still on the wings: something
serving as a catalyst for action. Fragments of reality are no
longer in limbo. Now, fluttering in the air, the moth
is out on a limb. Right now, I can imagine mouths speaking.



Ali Znaidi, Redeyef, Tunisia
