the absence

The absence exists as the absence of the other. The other leaves, I stay. I, who love, am tied in space, immobile, available, expecting.
I express your absence which consists of myself who is always present. Myself stays and yourself leaves. To every human who expresses their absence… To every human who expresses the absence of the other, the female component manifests itself. The one who waits has been turned into female. The infancy of our species belongs to the subjects bearing the female component.
The absence lasts, I have to endure it. I’m cramped in the hard present tense.
