Leiris, Michel: Misdeal (Maldonne in English)

Portre of Leiris, Michel

Maldonne (French)

Les dés

éphémèrement unis

sur la table sont séparés



lourde figure à jouer


Dames Rois et Valets

de rouge et de noir rehaussés

s’ébattent sur un air ancien

Misdeal (English)


momentarily together

fly apart on the table



facecard troublesome to play


Queens Kings and Jacks

set off in red and black

frolic to an old air
