Abstract

I fled the orange, my writing fled the secret voice of the orange, I withdrew from the shame of being unable to receive the benediction of the fruit giving itself peacefully, for my hand was too lonely, and in such loneliness, my hand no longer had the strength to believe in the orange . . . my writing was separated from the orange, didn’t go to it, didn’t call it, didn’t carry the juice to my lips.
