Rest in Hardtimes

Rest in Hardtimes

Hardtimes, my great laborer,
Hardtimes, have a seat,
Relax,
Relax for a bit, you and me
Relax.
You can find me, you can feel me out, you can try me,
I am your ruin

My great theater, my haven, my hearth,
My golden cellar,
My future, my real mother, my horizon.
In your light, in your expanse, in your horror,
I let myself go.
-Henri Michaux
(translation by Pepe LePew)
