"Everything begins somewhere else." (Juarroz)

_ _ _ 

Everything begins somewhere else.

It doesn't matter that some things
still remain here
and even end here:
here nothing begins.

Therefore this word, this silence,
this table, vase, your footsteps
were strictly speaking never here.

Everything is always somewhere else:
there where it begins.

― Roberto Juarroz
tr. by Mary Crow
