Before the careful--as collection, fall out,
letter about letter, upon letter. Ode to transportation: what is the
disappearance and reappearance of time? De-fuse the notion of a subject
(of the letter) and replace it with the notion of a recipient. The
relation (transportation) is in the continual arrival. Here is the
disappearance and reappearance of time. The time of writing unhinged
from the time-telos of publishing. Off paper the sent continues. Dream
of casting: Spelt. Tracking of intention. The time it occurs in is
the nature of accountability. Form of the time of the house that isn't
anything yet but motion.
To come into the recognition of these "exchanges" as--letter
making, as--what is in the act of corresponding. Interposed between
articulation and motion. What they allowed, tracked, indicated about
permeability of address--the possibility of sounding lived time. A
transport. An instance of recognition, of conversation. Spelt, lettered--by
speed, by a writing that begins as it is written. A time of writing
as a time of reception. Relativizing.
