this is a tale
this is not a tale
it is the story of Isabel
it is not the story of Isabel

coat of arms: the revolution is the wife
of god
the woman is the fate of the man

changing gender

Isabel was naked
Isabel wasn't naked
she sings           against the power of death
she doesn't sing

here is this wound
a margin           time as measure
does not measure

coat of arms: my body is your body
your body is my body

conclusion: beyond these limits
it's no good           uchronia utopia

someone rose
there are no limits
you are not on the other side

opening: deception of sense
the non-work is yet to be done           tautology heterology

Isabel's named olympia
what was the tale?
will she dare?

there is no conclusion
only coats of arms: beyond rigor
limits aren't of use

a tale measured laceration
I desire
