Black Hole

a black hole is a cosmic object
whose core kunfalis in such a star
cannot emit light
   and are black

nothing can get out
if someone would send
some light to the black hole
the light reflektiĝus ever
     gravity is too intense

a body
   falling from infinite distance
all light emitted
     from such a body
would be

rotacianta star kunfalanta
  in which the singularejo is not a point
it is not one
but two event horizons
   in which each object
is entirata
   in the rotation of the black hole

image without the black hole
image with the black hole
the information paradox

thus the hole could completely be destroyed
   leaving no trace
   of their former existence
and the objects
     sunken in it

describe the fate of kunfalanta star

  1. For this poem, I took the Esperanto Wikipedia page on black holes, ran it through Google Translate, picked out a few phrases and put them together. Strictly speaking, it’s not quite found poetry and it’s not quite cut-up poetry, but it’s a bit like both of them.


  2. There’s a sequel to the title of this poem happening in the UK right now.

    A depressing result and it’s difficult to see how the left could or might recover. The Tories played almost exclusively on fear – amazingly enough the English are all now terrified of the Scots amongst others.

    The vox-pops on the local NW news on the run-up to the election revealed a genuine horror of the Scots having any sort of voice at all.

    The failure of UKIP was the only bright moment but although Farage has said he’ll resign I very much doubt that he will.

    We’ve been tied up making a simple new show/insult to the intelligence involving a 25′ long python and trying to get a number of other projects off the ground.


  3. It is depressing, isn’t it? Being in another country, though, I feel the sting less acutely than I would do were I in Britain. The government here is even more ghastly and right-wing, but it isn’t my government.

    Good luck with the new show. I wonder if any theatrical performance has ever been titled An Insult to the Intelligence? I think it could draw in the punters. Plenty of Britons, it seems, respond well to having their intelligence insulted.


  4. if the reasons given by some for not voting Labour are any indication intelligence is in short supply at the moment.

    Labour’s fault was that they never really challenged the Tories over the cuts that were being made and the lies that were being spun to justify those cuts.

    Do you know Roy Andersson’s films? We went to see the latest ” A Pigeon sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence”. He has a very recognisable style – the film is a collection of heavily stylised tableaux, viewed through a static camera which connect in odd and poetic ways. There’s a bone, bone dry humour running throughout.

    The ending of “Songs From the Second Floor” is extraordinary. IMO it’s up there with the endings of Aguirre Wrath of God, The Passenger, Steamboat Bill Jr. and Carry On Up the Khyber.


  5. I saw Andersson’s You, the Living, but didn’t care for it. The humor was aiming for a bone-dry quality, but it struck me as labored and heavy. The miserablism seemed strained and phony. However, I won’t write off an artist on the basis of one movie/book/album.

    Speaking of movies with lots of static shots, I recently saw James Benning’s natural history at the Jeonju Film Festival. A series of 54 shots of varying length of rooms (mostly ones that are inaccessible to the public – offices, storage areas etc.) and specimens (both stuffed and jarred) at the Natural History Museum in Vienna. Apart from one instance where you see someone’s back, no people are shown. We hear their voices, but their words are indistinct. Audience reaction was mixed. There were a few walkouts, naturally. What amazed me is that some people had even brought their kids along, as if they hadn’t had the faintest idea of what kind of film they’d paid to watch.

    By the way, I was looking through my photos and I found a nice picture of your giant pig (is it Gloria?) sleeping peacefully. Would you mind if I post it on my tumblr blog?


  6. I found You The Living very funny – just goes to show.

    A Pigeon is in the same vein but a bit more bleak. .

    No problem about posting any photos up.

    Our summer tour starts up next week with a trip to France. Touring isn’t what it used to be but this year is actually better in terms of numbers of gigs than the last 3 years.

    We plan 1 more year of the Pig after this and then she will be retired.


  7. Belgian bleakness in the form of “2 Days One Night” by the Dardenne brothers last night.

    A very simple single dilemma that they get the absolute most out of.

    Having lived and worked in a Ken Loach/Shameless environment in Manchester for over 20 years I’m not that into social realism but here the minimalist approach turns the film into something else entirely.

    The government the UK have just voted in will further ensure that the drama in the film becomes more widespread in real life rather than less.


  8. I liked The Son as well.

    Two Nights has Marion Cotillard in it which marks a departure from their usual unshowy approach but as the lead character carries the film I suppose they needed someone who could manage that.

    It would be interesting to be a location scout for the Dardenne brothers, ” We need somewhere that is completely unremarkable to shoot this scene”.

    Have you seen “Hors Satan” by Bruno Dumont? It’s quite strange and extremely memorable. It’s “realistic” in one way but a lot of the details don’t make sense.


  9. You might enjoy his work – it’s minimal, low key and odd

    Based on Hors Satan the nearest comparison would be the Dardenne brothers but despite the locations and look it’s not really naturalistic at all, more about the uncanny.

    The events that don’t make sense linger in your mind rather than make you dismiss the whole thing as nonsense. He uses sound in a very particular artificial way as well.
