Toward a terminal zone Coupey, Pierre


Now I have the opportunity to write the grand preface, I find I have too much to say, and so, again, it's easier to want to say nothing. The poems here want to give some pleasure, to anyone who cares to take it from them. The poems to come, the terminal zone itself, what I have been moving toward and into, in both poetry and painting, will not give pleasure. But here, for the moment, are some of the notes recorded on the way. They have involved that kind of feeling-in-sleep one experiences when one must rehearse old voices, surrounding voices, unheard voices, in order to find from the many sounds around us that one strong enough to sing.
