No Porcupine

Poem By Jean Francois Le Goff

we are not porcupines
said the dummy rabbit
we are not porcupines
said the dummy dog

I'm Fanni.
and I'm not a rabbit
But the mask of a rabbit
But the spirit of rabbit

I am Yann.
I am not a dog
but the mask of a dog
but the spirit of dog

Who are you unknown?

two planets in the world?
Many constellations in the world?

The world but what world?
My world
your world
another world
One another world

no problem because
we are words also!
Words in the language.

Only one language in the world?
No, an infinity of languages.

Only one world in the world?
No, an infinity of worlds.

we are also porcupines
with soft spines
so soft, so sweet
like the gap of constellations
like the path of constellations
when we close our wide eyes
when we open our wide eyes.
