I AM A STRANGE LOOP / ES ESMU DĪVAINS APLIS
I used to go on the swings a lot as a child. I was fascinated by the up-and-down motion of weightless inertia, control and submission. The horizon of a landscape is inclined to one side, the world is moving on its own. The legs pierce the sky like arrows, and, along the eyes also pierce the sky and, immediately after, the ground. A mechanism similar to the pendulum of a clock propels the person, though on the whole they remain almost motionless. This trajectory is a circle, it resembles the movement that eyes follow when being hypnotised. I don't like going on a swing and feeling the weightless submission to inertia. The feeling of swinging tends to come to me without swinging. I am standing still, but at the same time I am levitating, I am moving up and down.
