Aphorism (The Betrayal of Images V)


Kafka writes in the Aphorisms:

“From the true opponent, a limitless courage flows into you”.

But what

you seek to escape


this dim road?

All of this

additional time

will be taken

from you.

in the same spot.

A self-portrait does not have to be complete to show the face: only viewers need to appear whole even though inside they might be full of holes.


Like Jude,

one continues to

wish oneself

out of the world &

one mistakes the city

for the person.
