Ce poète n’a pas le luxe ou la liberté d’évoluer en scaphandre autonome, il a des pieds de plomb et reste relié à la surface des choses. Pourtant il s’obstine à parcourir les forêts sous-marines de son subconscient pour trouver des trésors. Ces trésors, fragiles, et rares, parce qu’ils pourraient devenir des mots doux, des images réconfortantes, sont d’abord des bulles d’air, des respirations dans sa vie d’explorateur d’histoires. Ces ballons sont précieux parce qu’ils pourraient éclater ou se dégonfler à tout moment. Tout cela ne serait rien, s’il n’y avait pas aussi la présence obsédante des mines, toutes ces fausses bonnes idées, qui en prenant forme d’images ou de mots vous éclatent à la figure. Alors il fait son métier, entretenant ses outils, comme un bon artisan, sa guitare électrique pourrait aussi bien être un ciseau à bois, une plume pour écrire ou le stylet d’une tablette graphique. Pour frayer un chemin à une expression juste, il lui faut briser des chaînes pour libérer les mines en les désamorçant ou en les laissant éclater au loin, à la surface des choses. L’arc électrique fait sa force, mais aussi le risque de s’électrocuter, alors dans le huis-clos de son scaphandre, il pense d’une boutade : “pourquoi ne pas éternuer ?”

This poet does not have the luxury or the freedom to evolve in an autonomous suit, he has lead feet and remains connected to the surface of things. Yet he persists in scouring the submarine forests of his subconscious to find treasures. These treasures, fragile and rare, because they could become sweet words, comforting images, are first of all bubbles of air, breaths in his life as an explorer of stories. These balloons are valuable because they could burst or deflate at any time. All of this would be nothing if it weren't for the obsessive presence of submarine mines, all these false good ideas, which, taking the form of images or words, pop in your face. So he does his job, maintaining his tools, like a good craftsman, his electric guitar could just as well be a chisel, a pen for writing or the stylus of a graphics tablet. To clear a path to right expression, he must break chains to release mines by defusing them or letting them burst far away on the surface of things. The electric arc is his strength, but also the risk of being electrocuted, so in the camera of his diving helmet, he thinks of a joke: “why not sneeze?”

Je ne sais pas si les deux guitaristes du groupe avec lequel je fais de la zizique sont des poètes, mais ils doivent bien rêver pendant leur sommeil. Notre bassiste étant graphiste et fort sensible, rêveur et poète, il est en permanence confronté aux "mines" de notre quotidien!

Je vois que ma métaphore fait son chemin et que mon imaginaire peut être partagé.:) Merci Alain pour tes commentaires.

Love the combination of elements and the idea of a minesweeper bard!

What a marvellous concept and beautifully judged allegory... i find it fascinating that the coronaviruses in this context are like WW2 anti-ship mines. Also interesting that he plays a Rickenbacker (well to me at least!) who are credited with inventing the electric guitar....

what a wonderful and insightful look, I am always seduced by the finesse of your observations. I thought of John Lennon when choosing the guitar.
