The Table, all that means to write is The Table,

to be absolutely done with it.

The table, my console and my consoler, as it is re-

called to my body and at the same time my mind its


May it vibrate today in unison with the chords.

It isn’t on the metaphysical that our morals rest:

only on the physical.

May the subject matter presented methodically and

in miniature this way

{be seen | be read} in a single glance

and in this way become a soundboard it vibrates to-

day in unison with the chords.

-Francis Ponge
