Hop hop le long des murs seul plan blanc à l’infini sinon su que non. Fixe là d‘éternité là où hop fixe ailleurs sinon su que non. Pieds blancs invisibles talons joints à angle droit hop ailleurs aucun son. Plafond blanc un mètre carré jamais vu bing peut-être une issue peut-être par là une seconde deux secondes sans image. Sol blanc un mètre carré jamais vu bing peut-être une issue peut-être par Ià sans image sans douleur bing silence. Noires jadis traces seules inachevées [gris pâle presque] fouillis de signes sans sens gris pâle presque blancs quatre en tout toujours les mêmes.

Seuls les yeux donnés bleus pâle presque blanc fixe face seule couleur seuls rayonnante inachevés. Invisibles rencontres des faces une seule [face] blanche à I’infini sinon su que non. Nez oreilles trous blancs bouche fil blanc comme cousue invisible. Bing murmures à peine presque jamais une seconde toujours les mêmes tous sus. Donné rose à peine corps nu blanc fixe invisible tout su dehors dedans. Bing peut-être une nature une seconde avec image même temps un peu moins bleu et blanc au vent. Plafond blanc rayonnant un mètre carré jamais vu bing peut-être par là une issue une seconde bing silence.

Only the eyes only just light blue almost white. Head haiught eyes light blue almost white silence within. Brief murmuris only just almost never all known. Traces blurs signs no meaning light grey almost white. Legs joined like sewn heels together right angle. Traces alone unover given black light grey almost white on white. Light heat white walls shining white one yard by two. Bare white body fixed one yard ping fixed elsewhere. Traces blurs signs no meaning light grey almost white. White feet toes joined like sewn hells together right angle invisible.
