The coda is a preliminary exploration of two instantiations of para-semiosis that, while in resonant engagement with the love of-poiēsis in black, are not derivative of nor identical with it. One instantiation under consideration is the Algerian writer Nabile Farès’s encounter with James Baldwin presented in his novel Un passager de l’occident. The other is the writing of the Algerian Arabic writer aṭ-Ṭāhir Waṭṭār, which demonstrates an Arabic-expressed para-semiosis. This resonant conversation without the necessity of identity bespeaks the possibility of a human love that is non-agapeic and so not sacrificial, but also not egocentric.
