The Democratic Ghost Machine


Bodies will have to pay for their excess of languages.
….– Alain Badiou, Logics of Worlds

I believe in the body.
I believe in the diversity of languages.
I believe in democracy.

So speaks the man of commerce.

Life still vibrates under the hood of his eye.
Life is the name he hangs against the sky.
Life goes down the street against his cold and lonely heart.

Reduced to the bare minimum
of his naked certainty
he seeks equality in a zoo.

Under the auspices of trivial masters
he hibernates in a law of One
till feigning light he becomes Two.

He will pay for these excesses:
the exception of truths requires it.
