Dikt i prosess – prosedyre og kontradiksjon
Audiatur et altera pars
Dikteren trer tilbake – diktet står frem
La også den annen side høres:

BORN, NEVER ASKED

It was a large room.
Full of people.
All kinds.

And they had all arrived
at the same building
at more or less the same time.
And they were all free.
And they were all asking themselves
the same question:
What
is behind that curtain?

You were born.
And so you’re free.
So happy birthday.

  Laurie Anderson, fra ‘Big science’, 1982
