Me, Myself and Skandalouz

Little less conversation…


Le photographe est mort

Ce au in comun Robert Capa, Gerda Taro si Alt-J? Melodia nr 13 de pe albumul de debut “An Awesome Wave” al Alt-J, pe repeat de doua zile. Numele Alt-J vine de la combinatia de taste din Mac insemnand ∆ (Delta).

Versurile spun povestea ultimelor clipe din viata fotografului Robert Capa aflat in Indochina in timpul primului razboi al Indochinei. Capa este grav ranit calcand pe o mina si, moments later, transportat intr-un cort de prim ajutor, este declarat mort (1954).
Numele melodiei – Taro – vine de la Gerda Taro, prima femeie fotograf de razboi si iubita lui Capa. Aceasta i-a refuzat cererea in casatorie a lui Capa pentru a se dedica total carierei solo. La fel ca si Capa, a murit tot in timpul serviciului, masina in care era fiind lovita de un tanc (1937).

 …I have sprayed you into my eyes…


Indochina, Capa jumps Jeep, two feet creep up the road
To photo, to record meat lumps and war,
They advance as does his chance – very yellow white flash.
A violent wrench grips mass, rips light, tears limbs like rags,
Burst so high finally Capa lands,
Mine is a watery pit. Painless with immense distance
From medic from colleague, friend, enemy,
foe, him five yards from his leg, From you Taro.
Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.
3:10 pm, Capa pends death, quivers, last rattles, last chokes
All colours and cares glaze to grey, shrivelled and stricken to dots,
Left hand grasps what the body grasps not – le photographe est mort.
3.1415, alive no longer my amour, faded for home May of ’54
Doors open like arms my love, Painless with a great closeness
To Capa, to Capa Capa dark after nothing,
re-united with his leg and with you, Taro.
Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.
Hey Taro!
