Passé Composé

We are not writing to tell you anything.

Who is the “author”? Just these marks on the page.

You know nothing of us, nor we of you personally.

“No ideas but in things,” no poems

But in words; no persons in either.

The writer’s person exists before the poem

And after, before and behind, but not in it.
