POEM TRAVERSED BY THE SAMPLER MANIFESTO

Ramon Mello
To Frederico Coelho and Mauro Gaspar

translation by Leonardo Villa-Forte with Sophie Lewis

 

I

 

to invade the body of the world

to accept

the

chaos

to act in the emptying of certainties

don’t copy and paste

appropriate yourself and recreate reality

use your imagination

emancipation papers for a first

act

not every beginning is a prologue

 

II

 

believe

you are not original

right

just the purity of a

myth

pressure is

not

simple

exert

kidnap, looting, capture

of words

don’t tell the parents

every word is

an orphan

there are

no final

words

every word

is

beginning

pirate, captain, buccaneer

00’s

generation promise

ideas remix

souvenirs

hail waly

oh, if you were still around

not to write about

not to describe or reproduce

the master

produce write produce

I

am a boy

in your words

don’t call my name in vain

skip the stone

in the way

 

III

 

be changed by the poets you read

annihilate the references

a collection of  enumerations

make

literature without thanking raduan

or adalgisa

make

your own  portrait

as a young man

find your ideas

starting from

in spite of

(remember her?)

in spite

of

invader

to battle!

what are the limits

of the text?

original authors

live in a political way

create likewise

invade the city

invent

put everything inside

so that you can breathe

feel and notice

you

I am putting

inside

the chocolate

of so much looking

reading

no more

 

IV

 

collective property

I am you

is me we

recognize ourselves in the words

read and not said and not read

also

perceive

possession-creation

the

liars

are worthy

of love

god

in latin is pretender

of the creation

path

write everything

with this frantic hand

write write

the voices living

in you

in the paper

chaotic wild

this text is not

mine or yours

this text belongs

and that’s it

attack

danger rhythm

fearless of self-criticism

appropriate the labels

to destroy them

plagiarist saboteur

crown your intimacy

disturb

your peers

don’t let them

imprisoned

in the last century

the learning

the avant-gardes and the tradition

ways of using

your language

forget the isms

the didactic division

cross over

be tactical

 

V

 

shut

the mouth of whoever

doesn’t place himself

in space

make yours what is

someone else’s

provoke every

institutional simulation

way of making

to learn by doing

your diary

work

manipulate the history of

strangers write ours

invent

be author inventor

the reader

must recognize your steps

traversed path

it is

all in the past

future tumbles

over it

poetry rubs itself in things

see?

when you wake up,  see things

as

every thing

thrown around books newspapers

your love affair’s

avarice

you can furrow writing

flow

body is text

is body

emancipate your writing

let them bad-mouth you

tomorrow

they will all be kissing your ass

only debate your

existence

in the word

read

write

like one who traverses

the reader

subvert

transform the medium with the word

transtextual

trans cells

transsexual

a contemporary exu lodges in the other

past taking the present

for a horse-ride

 

VI

 

over-reach

yourself

ripen

the experience

be through

others

don’t cheat it’s fatal

literature’s true story

a story of thieves

experience

infinite number

the strong man lives

only

remember the others

understand

relations of power

you heard from an artist made of plastic

it’s all worthy but not worth

any

thing

black things are

so beautiful

except for the horse

drink

ice tea light

with lemon and ice

lipton with lots of caffeine

at cafeína

do not imitate

write starting

from

fold the sheet’s line

fold yourself

you know that paper

can only be folded

seven times

hm

way of

trying out

the spaces

we are born with the dead

always

the end is the means

a new detour

news without news

literary journey surrounded by music

listen

it doesn’t need to quote

it’s not

build

theses to corrupt them

the text has senses

not

sense

to make while reading

language doesn’t indicate sense

but possibilities

the words

penetrate you

or not

use every napkin

from the coffee

with milk and cornflour biscuit

(compensating the poor service’s 10%)

to gain strength with the ideas

think about time

about our time

time

time

time

time

silences

incorporated in writing

oblivion as learning the written?

invasion by reading

this poem has no

end

it is the medium
