a short rebuttal (marcella sends a note of reply to her husband porphyry)
Iman Maleki, "Dizziness" (2003?)
you wrote it out in chapter and verse, line by line.
i read between the lines. i can see what you are not saying. you wish to speak with certainty, but i make you doubt, make your hand tremble. you wish to speak rationally, logically, and you hate me for filling you with passion, for finding the emotion of your words. i relativize your objectivity; i pull the ground out from under your speech. your words float about the page. i am too close? mine is a real body, and i will break through all the words you use to contain me. the page will burst from the strain. i am the interruption and i am here to stay.
