Des fourmis rouges et leur acide formique une semaine plus tard…/ Fire ants and their formic acid a week later… Michaux: “Dans le secret de ma petite chambre, je pète à la figure de mon Roi… Cependant il est bien évident que c’est lui le Roi, et moi son sujet, son unique sujet.” – “In the secrecy of my little room, I fart in my King’s face… However, it is quite obvious that he is the King, and I his subject, his only subject.” Extrait de Le Grand Combat (1927) “Il l’emparouille et l’endosque contre terre ;
Il le rague et le roupète jusqu’à son drâle ; Il le pratèle et le libucque et lui barufle les ouillais…” /Excerpt from Le Grand Combat (1927) “He grabowerates him and grabacks him to the ground; He rads him and rabarts him to his drat; He braddles him and lippucks him and prooks his bawdles… ” […]
