David Abram on Language


The Rocky Mountains British Columbia

"Only as the written text began to speak

would the voices of the forest, and of the river, begin to fade.

And only then would language loosen its ancient association with the invisible breath,

the spirit sever itself from the wind,

the psyche dissociated itself from the environing air."

~ David Abram
