Mathias the Uncatchable Alien from Overthere


The street is long
Mind you all the lights
The cars the zebra crossings
Bicycles pedestrians
Never can I see it all alone

You must think of tomorrow
I won’t be with you all the time
Says Mathias in my mind

I reach the tower block
I climb to my seventh floor
I hate urnal coffin lifts
I prefer stairs and steps
Their obscene graffiti

You should think of tomorrow
I don’t intend to always be there
Says Mathias in my brain

I unlock open my door
I get into my office
I turn on all the machines
Coffee machine first of all
And I sit contemplative

You have to think of tomorrow
I intend not to be here all the time
Says Mathias in my skull

OK Mathias doppelganger
What’s on tomorrow?
My agenda says nada
So what do you have in mind?
In my mind, mind you?

I have nothing in mind Matthew
Remember the mind is only you
Tomorrow I go on a vacation

You go on a vacation Mathias
You desert mind, brain and skull
you abandon me all alone
You maroon me in the rolling sea
Of this here bare barren crowd

Like it or not dear Matthew
There are laws in this country
Including for friends of the mind

You, my mindful friend, Mathias
You who will dispose of me tomorrow
Dump me in a loony bin of trash
Strand me to drown in populace
To Choke on a mouthful of people

Oh yes, my very dear friend Matthew
I will go for two weeks
You can start mourning today

I love that, you my friend
I lodge you in my mind
You haunt my brain day and night
You feed on all my thoughts
And I must do shivah’ in my skulls

But Matthew my very dear friend
You will adapt, adjust, ad lib
And you will even love me more

You have a point there, Mathias
Ungrateful grateless grating
Grater that rants and raves gratis
Me Rigoletto power twenty
Laughing stock of my soul

Except little beloved Matthew
You will never have me killed
We are friends till death us parts

Or till I take a loony therapist
Who will pull you out of my proteins
In no time though with many tears
Yell yawl yowl perchance yodel
I swear I’ll stop after a while

You see, just my point Matthew
You are crazy and I am it
The craze that makes you live

I know what you’re going to say
Let’s admit our fate together
We are friends till love us parts
Can you hear the tolling bells
That’s no love that’s death

Better have a dirge Matthew
A lamentation in an urn
Than your friend in a cesspool

All these poems and stories are dedicated to Lucretia who helped crossing the long depression between the mountain of hostile war and the mountain of reconstruction.
Some people, some events played an enormous role in those years, The University of Perpignan in their Mende unit; the Festival of La Chaise-Dieu and sacred music, music, and music again; Michel Thénot of Central Parc with whom I visited dozens of Romanesque churches running after Black Virgins; in Sri Lanka Sujeewa and Sudarshani and the confrontation with elephants; and then Paris with several life-ghosts who made me recapture life: many were named Arthur but some stand out, Ivan, Paula and Animata. Special mention to Christian Gauchet, Ghalib Hakkak and Père Emmanuel Gobilliard.
They are too numerous to be named all. They are legions and that’s how we survive on this earth, satiated with love, friendship and mental and spiritual experience.

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.


We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone.
Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide and a teach-in at the National Mall, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels - from local schools to federal agencies - throughout the world.

Enjoy the mesmerizing descent of the gorillas in man


Eternity is in the suffering of life

Benjamin BRITTEN soon @ Théâtres du Monde n° 27 (2017)

The article will be published in French some time in April (32 pages) under the following title:

Jacques COULARDEAU ------------------------------------------- p. 155
Benjamin Britten. L’étranger, l’enfant et la mort dans ses opéras

You will find all the reading and research notes IN ENGLISH, opera by opera in the following file of some 140 pages.

I am pretty sure opera lovers, Benjamin Britten enthusiasts and music lovers will enjoy following, in chronological order, the building of a whole temple dedicated to the figure of the estranged man, rarely estranged woman, confronted to a child, most of the times a boy, at times a boy and a girl and how these children are confronted to death, real sad death that is anything but natural; but also the death that comes as sinister fate, as war and an obsessive and recurrent Jewish reference, be it Biblical or be it 1939 and Bertold Brecht’s visionary poem on the extermination of children, and first of all the Jewish child on the decision of a Nazi judge.

You will of course love and enjoy over and over again Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice, that poignant story of an old man seeing his end coming and falling in love with a young teenager he will not speak to, he will not touch nor approach in any way, contemplating in him his possible descent, his possible heritage, his possible continuation in his search for beauty, the formal architecture of beauty that is so mesmerizing when met in pure mental and spiritual expectation to survive in it because beauty will survive his own departure.

Death becomes an offering to God and life in this empathetic search for fulfillment.

Vanessa Chevallier en branle-bas de combat

AmazonKindle Asin B010VYPOWI

Ne me dites pas que c’est une petite ville, ni que c’est la montagne moyenne qui veulent ça. Sinon dans une minute vous allez me prétendre qu’il y a des dragons dans les Pyrénées et des loups garous dans le Massif Central et des vampires dans les Alpes. Faites plutôt confiance à Vanessa Chevallier.

Il y a bien plus pire encore que cela dans la tête des mauvais voisins qui s’approprient tout sur leur passage, sur leur mitoyenneté, sur leur voisinage. Rien ne résiste à ces esprits qui ne sont même pas criminels car ils ont le crime dans le sang et pas dans leur matière grise ou blanche.

Ainsi de pire en pire vous descendrez dans les bas-fonds de cette petite ville et d’un être qui se dit humain et qui est après tout un notable local. Mais ne lui donnez pas la communion sans confession. Il pourrait vous en coûter cher.

Jacques Coulardeau

Deux sœurs.
Une maison de rêve.
Un petit coin de campagne paisible.
Paisible? Si au début de leur installation, les sœurs Brausch pensent retrouver le domaine familial et renouer avec leurs souvenirs d'enfance, le rêve pour elles va vite tourner au cauchemar.
Le Mal se cache parfois dans la douceur d'un paysage, le long d'une rivière qui vient frapper les pales d'un moulin endormi dans la plaine. Mais le Mal peut prendre plusieurs visages et n'est jamais celui auquel on s'attend.

Quel bonheur de pouvoir lire un premier roman ! Et celui-ci ne dépareille pas à ce plaisir. Il y a une certaine naïveté dans ces personnages, deux femmes essentiellement, et un père de toute façon qui vient juste de mourir et que les deux sœurs enterrent ensemble et ainsi se retrouvent, l’une s’installant dans le moulin du père mais elle était restée pas très loin, l’autre venant la rejoindre et laissant Paris derrière elle, faisant de Paris ce qu’il est profondément, un décor temporaire pour visiteurs toujours éclairs. Y a-t-il des Parisiens de souche, surtout quand ils sont nés là par une sorte d’accident de parcours dans une pérégrination sans fin ?

Mais le roman devient rapidement dans le petit village où nous sommes, presqu’une petite ville de canton provincial écarté, le cadre d’une sinistre querelle territoriale. C’est à toi, je le veux, tu me le donnes où je te tue. Et tout va balancer entre un moulin ancien et un pigeonnier tout aussi ancien, entre une cleptomane pie voleuse et un vautour médical mangeur de chairs. Un peu d’amour pour ces deux sœurs, mais si peu et toujours frustré par une mort soudaine. Le suspense sentimental se double et s’enfle d’un suspense criminel.

Et le meurtrier, si ce n’est pas une meurtrière, fera feu de tout bois, n’hésitera sur aucun investissement sanguinaire, ne reculera devant aucun obstacle charnel. Qu’on s’en débarrasse et laissons au charnier le soin de trier avec un peu d’aide de la gendarmerie. Ce cynisme assassin est pire encore que l’envie criminelle.

Le pire étant que justice sera faite de facto mais pas de jure. Comme on faisait au Moyen Age. Nos villages de la France profonde n’ont toujours pas changé.

Ce qui est le plus troublant, mais aussi fascinant reste le fait que on passe du point de vue d’une sœur à celui de l’autre sœur et qu’entre deux l’auteure se fait redresseuse de récit pour lui donner la direction nécessaire pour aller sinon droit au but, du moins dans la bonne direction. Et ici et là une vue en plongée dans les profondeurs troublantes et obscures du psychisme de ces gens biens sous tous rapports, comme ils disent après le drame qui a surpris tout le monde tellement ces gens-là étaient normaux. Et le pire c’est qu’ils étaient et sont toujours pour les survivants encore plus normaux que normaux, banals comme les fours et les moulins d’autrefois.
