Las Encantadas

 

26 April 2009, Louvre, Room 27

I see them, the enchanted ones

Four pillars with two figures in relief each, in a base

that is not theirs. Their architrave is missing too.

I look at them carefully. They look suffering.

I dont touch them. For me, their substance was never material.

Their memory existed before their image.

I close my eyes and I reopen them in Thessaloniki port.

I let their image on the water, where they were once loaded,

on the ship named “La Truite” in 1864 for France.

Remembering is more important than possesing.
