you change a diaper to get the shit out
obviously change is good
yet why is it resisted
unless you need to change a tire
without it you cannot roll
last minute change to your airline ticket
will cost you some more dough
if you change the ingredients in a recipe
it won’t taste as good as told
you’re hot you change the temperature
when you see it coming
don’t resist your change
or think it is just for others
after buying something with a dollar
you expect to get your change
dVerse prompt on change
by Francis Ponge, translated by Jane Swanson
The oyster is the size of an average stone yet rougher in appearance and less in color, brilliantly white. It is a world tightly closed.
Yet it can be opened and it must be held in the hollow of a cloth, using a knife and slightly chipped open, you try several times. Curious fingers cut into it, breaks nails, such a crude work. The blows are marks on the door of the shell, white and round, making a kind of halos.
Inside we find a whole world to eat and to drink under a pearly sky with heavens from both above and heavens from below, while forming a pond, and a viscous green bag which ebbs and flows with smell and sight, fringed on the edges with black lace.
Sometimes a very rare formula for pearl is deep in the throat of pearliness, which we immediately adorn ourselves with.
