‘listen silent in this instant world

a night in the thing’

— ‘Anagram’, Simon Smith

Simon Smith presents a new translation of Rimbaud’s ‘Le Bateau Ivre’ paired with details of Bowls, a series of watercolour images by Felicity Allen, following the turbulent and fantastical voyage of Rimbaud’s drunken boat as an escape—however briefly—from the very disturbing realities of Covid, ‘cyber-junk’, and armed insurrections. Source is a journey from sources: from river to sea, from source texts to translations, and from wildly intoxicating spaces to the very raw hangover of the next day.
