Language Says

Language Says
Hunt Song
Love Song
Song of the Tribe

Translated by: Helena Berg, Fiona Sampson

Language says: Before Language
there stands a language. Language is tainted traces
from over there.
Language says: Listen, now.
You listen: There has been
an echo.

Take silence and try to be silent.
Take words and try to speak.
Byond language, Language is a wound
from which the world flows and flows.
Language says: Is, Is not, Is,
Is not. Language says: I.
Language says: Let’s speak you,
let’s feel you, come say
you have said.
