about

There is

There are

//

“There’s a boat sailed off with my beloved
[…]
There’s a thousand little pine trees bombed to hell here
[…]
There’s me moaning over a letter that has not come
[…]
There are crosses everywhere on both sides
[…]
There are the long tapering fingers of my girl”

– Apollinaire, from “Il y a” (tr. Donald Revell)
