eaten away with a black hole now. He said that there were migranes caused just by the way the head is held now. When we were children. His father hurt me. Freud hurts me because he tells me and then he forgets me. He tells me and then he forgets me.I tell me and then I forget me. But I remember me here.It is the mouth And the digestive system. The Alimentary canal the network of my body . The pee pee and the poo poo. The medical diagram. The foot that withers. The arm that can’t bend. The back that is twisted.The illness of the body. Ieat sweets. I am given cakes and cakes and cakes. Sweet days. I smoke cigarettes of my grandfather in Vienna in the post office of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. I cough and cough now. I am Sigmund Freud and I smoke a cigar.I* am hurt by the tsar of Russia who keeps me in a cellar. Who traps me in the stable now in the abject stable now of abjection of Julia Kristeva.His name is Fritzl. He photograps me in a lake. Iam a little girl. He tells me I am I boy now .That I must wear trousers and looks best like that. He takes me to barber the bat barber. Iget short hair.i ride in sidecar of motorcycle now erlkoning speaks to me now come to me my child and come to me now come to me and come to me he knows these poems in german come to me and come to me and come to me now iam ania vanya stable boy in stable in hold position I bend over …”neurosis determined by period in which it originates … fixed in earlie!it childhood”.

“The mechanism of poetry is the same as hysterical phantasies … the symptoms like dreams are a fulfilment of a wish.” I am writing here as acting out the poem “erlkoning”, the picture of nazi tale of art history that I look at ,i like pretty pictures, want to sleepy now, going to pictures with daddy every sunday afternoon and the eating cakes and sweets and feeling sleepy or half asleep and good and sleepy and half-conscious and middle muddle me so I could be vanya ania and any part of his story and listen to a story tell me a story and fall asleep sleepy and warm and sleepy and eat cakes and creamy dreamy eamie me little boy Iwant him to tell me Iam good boy now

Freud writes and writes to me to me …”… in every case, the father not excluding my own, had to be blamed …”yet,…”there are no indications of reality in the unconscious so that one cannot distinguish between truth and fiction”.! am making up talltales and fairytales and tales and fantales and it all turns out true .I tell me.I didn’t expect it to be like this …” memory … which releases unpleasure … ego discovers this too late. It has permitted a primary process because it did not expect one.”The symptom becomes physical. I have a dirty mouth.I speak dirty now. I eat cakes and cakes. Igo to the cinema. I have to.I wear trousers.I cut short hair. I become a writer.

And then he abandons me and tells me that I invent this. I make it all up here. Freud talks about false memory and invented memory and phantasy. I make it all up here. I make up my life story.
