44 / HENRI MICHAUX Icebergs Icebergs, without guardrail, without girdle, where old weather beaten cormorants and the souls of recently dead sailors lean on their elbows on the enchanting and hyperboreal nights. Icebergs, Icebergs, cathedrals without religion of the eternal winter, robed in the glacial skullcap of the planet Earth. How high, how pure are your edges, born of the cold. Icebergs, Icebergs, back of the North Atlantic, august Buddhas frozen on uncontemplated seas, gleaming Lighthouses of Death without issue, the desperate cry of the silence lasts for centuries.
It is normal for the disease to begin by triumphing. But if on the second and third nights the animal seeks to get out, to dig under the door, it’s all over, the HENRI MICHAUX / 49 patient is done for; as well close his mouth immediately. If the dog does not bark and remains quiet, the patient is in no danger, but still he may be no more than the shadow of himself from now on. N o man has ever died beside a sleeping dog. The dog always wakes up in time to bark. The barking is naturally meaningful.
O f course! Like every other place. But these scarcely count. Above all else they turn over to a dog the responsibility for curing him. As soon as they’ve managed to shut a dog into the patient’s room, they happily disperse. The latter is, if I may say so, in good hands. In just one night, sometimes, he finds he is cured. It is a fact that the dog’s presence brings him a salutary rest. If the dog will not consent to remain sleeping on the bed: a bad sign, though not absolutely hopeless. It is normal for the disease to begin by triumphing.
