Eugène Guillevic: “When Nothing Is Happening”

When Nothing Is Happening

When nothing is happening
And you start thinking
That nothing is happening

What’s really happening
Is that you are thinking
That nothing is happening

Your thought takes on weight
As though it were an event

In which time concentrates
Upon itself

And so do you.

Eugène Guillevic
