Katedralde şarkı söyleyen çatlak kızın rolünü sevdim ben.

Odamın penceresi kilise bahçesine bakardı. O günleri hatırladım. Pazar günleri oraya gelenleri seyrederdim. Onlar beni farketmezlerdi ama kilise bekçisi hep görürdü onlara baktığımı. Belki de dili yoktu onun. Sadece kapıyı açıp bahçedeki yaprakları süpürüp geriye kalan zamanlarda öylece oturup duruyordu. Dili var mıydı, hiç öğrenmedim ama yalan söyler gibi bakardı insanın yüzüne.

Filmi seyrederken nedense o pencere geldi aklıma.

“What actually is possible, however, is transformation. And the transformative effect that emanates from new works leads us to new perception, to a new feeling, new consciousness.” This sentence from Ingeborg Bachmann’s Frankfurt Lectures on Poetics (1959-60) can also be applied to her own self-consciousness as an author, and to the history of her reception.

“Our field is the sky,
tilled by the sweat of motors,
in the face of night,
at the risk of our dreams---

…. … … … …
Who lived there? Whose hands were pure?
Who glowed in the night,
A ghost to other ghosts?
Who lives down below? Who cries….
Who has lost the key to their house?
Who can’t find their bed, who is sleeping
on the steps of the stairs? When morning comes, who will
dare interpret the silvery trace: look above me…When the
water pushes the watermill wheel once again,
who will dare remember the night?”
