Having had to left my country I cry / Now my place is the tents of the Huns / It weighs heavy on my heart, heavy on my eyes / As they eat the rotten flesh of sheep / I can't drink the milk they offer in copper cups / To the sound of incessant drums / They whirl and whirl till early morning / The storm thunders in the step / Till it covers all the roads with dust. A Chinese Princess who became a Hun wife.

To think about things in the object. That is what making a rhizome, that is making something that is not a root but rather drawing lines and not points means. To create a people in the desert but not species and kinds in the forests; to fill without specifying it. C. Parnet

It will shatter the black / Should you stop the white. The Secret History of the Mongols

Not a correct image, just an image. Godard

What is this ordering? It is one of sharing, sympathy. What is important is not genealogies but rather marriages and intermixtures; not admixtures but the wind, the infectious diseases, the plagues, the children and the grandchildren. The sorcerers know this well. An animal is defined more by the ordering into which it enters than by its functions, organs, species or its style. For example an object which has been transformed into a craftwork is an example of the ordering of animal-man. G. Deleuze - C. Parnet

Being so afraid as to be killed by mouth (words) He climbed a mountain top. l Bear with it my friend They are climbing the mountain tops. Now they lack the courage to open a new front.

The nomads are always in the middle. They arise in the middle of the plains, they enter large forests, large empires. Plins, grass and nomads are all the same thing, Nomads have neither past nor future, all they have is their being, their being-woman; their wonderful beastly art. Nomads don't have a history, just geography. C. Parnet

Would you like to at least know which animal you are becoming? And especially the animal that is becoming in you? G. Deleuze - C. Parnet

CROW n. Like most birds of his family the crow has a well-organized social life and developed psychic talents. It is easy to tame it. Various methods are used in agriculture to fight against the crows; they may be shot by guns; their nests may be destroyed or they may be poisoned. The fields can be protected by nets or scarecrows.

I, Cilger, bad and vulgar / Having fallen in love with / Ucin Hatun / Have become a disaster for all merkits / I, Cilger, vulgar and bad / Have become a disaster / For my own black head / To save that life of mine worth a sheep's shit / Which dark and black cave should l escape into / To save that life of mine worth a sheep's shit / Who would help me? The Secret History of the Mongols

Yes, I am a thief of thoughts / not, I pray, a stealer of souls/ I have built an' rebuilt / upon what is waitin' / for the sand on the beaches / carves many castles / on what has been opened / before my time / a word, a tune, a story, a line / keys in the wind t' unlock my mind / an' t' grant my closet thoughts backyard air / it is not of me t' sit an' ponder / wonderin' an' wastin' time / thinkin' of thoughts that haven't been thunk / thinkin' of dreams that haven't been dreamt / an' new ideas that haven't been wrote / an' new words t' fit into rhyme… / an' not t' worry about the new rules / for they ain't been made yet / an' t' shout my singin' mind / knowin' that it is me an' my kind / that will make those rules. Bob Dylan
