Vertigo (a prefatory poem for the subjects of my investigations)


Vertigo

Superman:     Easy, miss. I've got you.                                           Lois Lane:    You've got me? Who's got you?                          
 Superman: The Movie (1978)

For all those who are dangling in midair, 
       in the middle crossing

  Who find themselves in a dark wood, 
                            betwixt and between--
                  on the threshold,        
                                      at the window, 
                                                             on the border;


         in a state of exception,
                                      before the law--
                        seeking terra firma, 
                                              a sure path, 
                                                                   or the bomfim,


                             certainties & securities, 
                                   potentiality, 
                       solidity in liquid modernity

                upon the unanchored vessel, 
                                      on the untethered beast
                                                            ... in the unsecured present
