extract from Arthur Rimbaud's

L'Orgie Parisienne
ou Paris se repeuple


Quand la lumière arrive intense et folle,
Fouillant à vos côtés les luxes ruisselants,
Vous n'allez pas baver, sans geste, sans parole,
Dans vos verres, les yeux perdus aux lointains blancs,

Mai 1871


The Parisian Orgy
or Paris is Repeopled


When the light comes, intense and crazed,
To ransack round you the rustling luxuries,
You're not going to dribble into your glasses,
Without motion or sound, with your eyes lost in white distances,

May 1871
