TEQ #414
Exodus 15:13
    נחית בחסדך עם-זו גאלת נהלת בעזך אל-נוה קדשך


   Old ranked with even.
Convenialism got a scar ranked under her nose.
Now that we're watching,
   the movie's going to be

nil when I'm going to church,
   will be seen the underbukse
in Yessitown,
   were treated and detected together.

Amund saw: It was pupper in the frigaucy,
as if he had not observed,
   behind the balance,
the rear / melancholy: It's trueing warm.

Aye - it would be necessary to joke away
your brain:
All the waterproof win,
   will not excerpt an extract.

I'm very sorry I didn't saw this disk man.
Writer, oh writer, I am very sure,
I wasn't your
Londonderry, gases and the defuncts.

It was: Travel off!
The royally keep their ear/heir/air.
More time in Charlie Monte's idea:
The time had just stopped as I made all my idea,

all the sex numbers,
horribly, extension.
I remember the seal and the pretty pilot test.
Hold on -

it's all a lousy dog-peer
   S-doing it!
All that is map, there is traaers.
   There is træeers.

Set it, with a snew mile,
streets smartened out
in his rojection.
Once again, travel a start. Travel a seat.

What I cannot do there and then, I have to take out in a beach,
Brendmong among the "watch me/on".
I felt that a real dramatic/grammatic was not in the weather.
To the extent that I can allow it, the flower is readable.

I kunne si det, if it were not my original.
An aughority hasn't used it for many years.
It's filled, it's massive!
Later on, I felt that I shouldn't have walked those stairs,

and only to / blur the distance,
something which hasn't made a shunt about Tanzania
along with Jack Blay, who
at least for the present time, make so many angerangements.

You know how you do,
   to travel the source,
despotie and historie.
There was this one here who meant that there was a unity in it,

the complicator,
the surface's quartet.
At romance, you not always feel well and up.
This is the Hop tradition.


From my 'Birds to Saladin', Bergen 1999, pages 174-176, written on 21-22 january 1999. 'Birds to Saladin' is books 5-8 (the second quartet) of 'TEQ' = 'The Endmorgan Quartet' pages 355-578 - the present poem is in book 7 "A sister of Toukhraud" (pages 467-526) in parallel with Exodus 15.

The Holy Bible, New International Version, International Bible Society 1984 translates Exodus 15:13 "In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling".

Source for the hebrew parallel text is Biblia Hebraica, Hooght/Hahn, Lipsiae 1839.

An interesting, although probably not exhaustive, theory on this poem is that it could apply to the faculty of vision in images such as this by this (see this), or this and this (as in this), and the 'Thelonius' jazz club' I remember well from around 1980 although I believe, as far as I can remember, that I had not seen the photo of the 'nativity of Christ' (in this source) before 2022, this Tintoretto (see this), the map of Europe from this, the schimmelbild, the inspector in this file, the mountain etc - there could be many sorts of images recognized in this poem, even if that should be only a marginal interpretation.
