monsieur césaire revolts in some place called heaven

aimé césaire died yesterday, at an almost heavenly age of 94. read his ‘cahier d’un retour au pays natal’ (again), it hasn’t lost its sparkling anger, the one these days need as all those before did. may you, monsieur césaire, walk on in peace and keep up your revolt in the presence of this beautiful lady called death. perhaps this ‘there’ resembles the one you once described in your ‘prophecy’: “là où la mort est belle dans la main comme un oiseau/saison de lait”.
