5. THE MOVEMENTS OF THE ARM

At this point, I should just go ahead and admit that writing occurs slowly. Sometimes to the point of no writing at all. An assemblage as much as it is a cutting, the equilibrium in language seems to me imaginary. At the tip, at the furthest end, I cannot offer anything but the ā€œI.ā€ The problem is, it takes a while for body to be covered only by skin. The bones have to project more and more between muscles and tendons, the head not to be pinned down by some idea of truth and to strategically come together with the sacrum so that the two pelvic bones may form a bony ring. And at this moment, if anything at all happens to [my] writing, nothing happens to it but touch3 and some genital contractions.

3 Nancy, Jean-Luc.
