Responses to Sartre’s Being and Nothingness 

being-nothing arises from everyday engagements with concepts such as negation, bad faith, the for-itself and freedom.

The finger points

the hand turns

the eye blinks

the blood rises

the heart beats 

the heart rests

the heart beats 

the heart rests.

I am no-thing;

a moving statue,                 

                in flight

        towards            from


waiting for Others 

to change.


a night has no parts extract
