INDIO GRIS Nコ 22

1

Today I couldn稚 listen to her not even falling over her. So I relaxed in the armchair waiting for the tentacles of life. After fifteen minutes she said clearly:

-I知 going to pay something, I知 going to spend something and I知 going to put an end to all illusion.

 2

 I had finished with my father a long time ago, so this question of the small inheritance comes to bother me. The best thing would be for me to spend that money quickly.

 3

 Today is Monday, March 16th, 1995: In only seven days I値l be flying to Cuba. I haven稚 yet prepared neither the conferences nor the recitals. So to speak, I go to Cuba as you might go to meet a beloved one, without previous thoughts, to face whatever might happen.

 4

 I知 entangled in a thousand love and money stories with more than a hundred persons. With the trip to Cuba everything is questioned. When I return from Cuba, if I return, I値l try to make up all my life again. In good time I verify pain, the joy of living.

5

I can稚 stop thinking that everything will go downhill, but I知 happy, I have painted a picture, a face. In the natural encounter with things of life I have seen freedom be born and that seemed to me stupendous, wonderful.

6

May 25th, 1995: I don稚 understand what they are saying to me or what they are talking about. I realise that I知 very far from finding any solution.

The only thing that is left to me is to quit everything and everything for me is the significant Cero Group. To quit. To quit. That, only that, to quit.

One must quit. I have to quit. I知 going to quit. Enough of Cero Group!

7

I知 about to understand everything and nothing.
Everything: death is inevitable.
Nothing: life, also, is inevitable.

Mental illness has to do with the distance the individual takes in relation to this truth.

8

I don稚 have to go on speculating. Everything has been already seen. The only radical difference is the one existing between working and not working.

I ask myself what to do to be normal, egoistical, stupid

Now, I have to leave everything, everything. Love poetry, dedicate myself to a full life, to the, public writing, to the utmost power of the written word.

9

Each time I make a balance, said the wretch, I feel that each day I have less. The sensation of having been cheated during my first twenty years of voluntary exile, remains unaltered.

I want to blow up the circuit. Now, just now I understand Lacan痴 No to his School. There is  a time when nobody wants to grow nor to assume the  growth that came about,  if the boss resigns, in that very moment, a truth is opened to each one, even for the boss.

10

Without fear, without guilt, without remorse, we have to fight for a Culture where poetry collects taxes.

11

She wants something strong from me, even if it is a fright, something that will allow her to dream with a certain degree of grandeur.

12

If I weren稚 so demanding, she told me this morning, I would be very happy and I answered her: Stop living to live, good controversy! What I want for myself is all the time.

13

Sunday, August 9th, 1988: I知 in love with my own future, without knowing almost nothing of what is going to happen to me, something will happen and that possibility is the whole motif of my love.

To love what will happen to me. The steps not yet given, I love with fervour the verses not yet written, the loves never imagined.

14

Sonorously I pick up the flag of death and drive it into me.
Words like towers, phrases like cliffs, rags stained with blood,
flying in me, inside me, breaking laces,
sonorous open laughter of death, noises like silks torn apart in the sea.

15

March, 1991: I知 glad of having obtained so much in barely 30 years and now that poetry has reached the zenith of all thought, of all knowledge, I知 not yet satisfied, I still want to enjoy.

The first association that crosses my mind about Poetry and Psychoanalysis is that when I was 16, before publishing my first book, I used to go to read my unpublished poems to the factories at lunch time.

While the beasts ate I read my verses to them. Once in a while, they stopped eating to laugh or curse while I was reading, and I felt understood. Afterwards we shouted to each other and I tried to explain to them that writing poems was a job, as serious and as alienated as the one they themselves performed.

16

Memories sometimes kill, like some psychoanalysts say and, sometimes, memories resuscitate like some poets say.

It was impossible not to remember, so that according with the master whom I was working for, I kept on dying and resuscitating at any moment. I had time for nothing. One day the Other sex held me up in the truth about Psychoanalysis and the freedom of poetry and, there, I was as mad as ever.

Freedom had stopped being a pair of centuries ago and truth was impossible to find without transforming it in something else.

17

I turned over my steps and found something. Us men were like monkeys. It wasn稚 strange that some men thought to be better than others, more developed. This way, one day Superman (very honest and legitimate) would arrive and do with the rest of men what men did to animals and plants.

18

There are things that shouldn稚 be done.
If they are done they shouldn稚 be told.
And if they are uttered, details shouldn稚 be told.

19

Ibiza, September 28th, 1993: Really I cannot adapt myself to any type of solitude.

The end of analysis is the construction of a new ghost, not the end of analysis. And this ghost is built in the place of the ID but under the condition of a work on the formations of the unconscious (dreams, jokes, Freudian slips, symptoms).

We can say that the ID (1923) is announced in the Freudian metapsychology with the notion of Fundamental Repression, while the unconscious undergoes the effects of the secondary repression, that is to say, the repression itself.

We could say that the ID is a 鍍hing that already existed in the first topic , but there wasn稚 any means to call it without denaturalising it since it is a 鍍hing that resists precisely to be named.

Here there is a 鍍hing that I cannot name therefore it cannot be confounded neither with the unconscious nor with its reservoir of drives.

20

Lacan introduces the term 途eal not only to designate what words cannot name but also what words can produce.

The ID, what is real, is what has no name and is produced by words. The inaccessible reality exists only because man speaks and is separated from the world, exiled from the world, by the whole weight of Language. In this sense, the first inaccessible reality is neither the objects nor the things that surround us, it is the individual himself. It is the individual that above all  is rejected in what is real, and that is what constitutes fundamental repression which will be called ID in the second topic.

In this place of the real first, place of the unknown, the reserved place where the ghost builds itself up through interpretation.
