I have just swallowed a terrific mouthful of poison.* Diverticulum was the diagnosis. Inside the hollow organs had preceded the violent penetration. The medical view exonerates and is exonerated. The mechanical eye wanders and investigates the landscape. The experiential plunge, the humid surfaces, the topologic dimension of the inner layer. During the path and in the middle of hallucinations the ‘diverticulum II’ was born.
*Arthur Rimbaud, ‘Night in hell’
In A season in hell, as translated by Paul Schmidt, and published in 1976 by Harper Colophon Books, Harper & Row.
