Crypto-cripple

The beauty of language doesn’t lie in articulation –

the very word sounds like clumsy shooting –

if there’s one place where there’s no beauty it’s there.

The beauty of violence doesn’t lie in describing the violence.

The beauty lies in revealing the language as violence,

violence that enrages itself

and spreads open your pelvis,

bitch.

KRIPTOKRIPL

Lepota jezika ni v artikulaciji –

že sama beseda zveni kot nerodno streljanje –

če je kje ni, potem tam.

Lepota nasilja ni v popisovanju nasilja.

Lepota je v razgrnitvi jezika kot nasilja,

ki se razkači

in ti razpre medenico,

prasica.
