Please, what does this mean:
"Elle vogue de faille en faiblesse"

Best I can do is "She drifts in error out of weakness"

Much obliged,
Proustina

    She drifts from failing to foible?

    Would be nice to know how the distinction between 'faille' and 'faiblesse' is made.

    Dear Ngarizona,

    That sounds write. This is from a prose poem, and so the alliteration makes sense. The woman persona speaks of herself in third person, and gently mocks herself as you can see.

    Merci mille fois,
    proustina
