To Gonzalo


HOW TO FIND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR YES, PLEASE YES, CONGRATULATIONS

What are you looking for? There is no truth. There’s only action, Action obeying a million different impulses, Ephemeral action, action subjected to every possible and imaginable contingency and contradiction. Life. Life is crime, theft, jealousy, hunger, lies, disgust, stupidity, sickness, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, piles of corpses. What can you do about it, mi poor friend? Blaise Cendrars


THE MANUAL

Drinking with strangers Faceless Snorting “cat� Losing in London Walking at night Listening to music Not hear the pursuer Guiding myself by the bells Running away Growing to the sky To touch Put the hand on stone beach.


BRIGHTON

With my Pegasus wings I can fly I am the cliff over sheep grazing in the meadows It is not a hallucination I am the path to the cross on top While the ocean throws Remains of a party Masks, dates Bottles without message.


STRANGE CREATURE

Strange creature with big feet Beloved creature of big mouth Gigantic mind Get close to me Make a run to the pier The winner will receive a kiss and a free ride on the wheel So if I have to turn as if I should wait on the ground I will think about one thing That day, I will whisper you my secret Near your big mouth Now mute


WOLF + EMPTY SWING

A powerful animal roams free A solitary wolf looking with One eye the swing of your Empty swing Which left hot Which you enjoyed beautiful views Toward the water with Wolf eye on your back Both looking Or one with one eye Robin, birds London

A HOUSE ON THE ICE, A BIKE FOR TWO

Old St My heart carried a suitcase of dreams A warm hug and a big smile I took the train to New Southgate Few stops and a friend waiting for me...


But just I arrived cold started Down the road I found a home on the ice Where there was nobody Nobody to smile or hug Only the house and a bike for two Impossible to drive it alone So no walk to see the swan I had to walk back Pulling dreams Slowly to avoid the footprint I trying not to slip There is no way

THE HIDDEN EGG IN RABBIT’S BROKEN POCKET

To play, I hid my egg In his pocket But he ran away and was protesting As he had a broken pocket The egg was lost And his shape far away


I ran after him And, suddenly, I found an egg, mine I didn’t know Or that the rabbit had A broken pocket Or that he would run And, I was lucky to find my egg right on his trail. Intact as newly laid I took it in my hand and became chocolate

Yes, it’s Easter Bombs, jungles and hotel card.

TO LAUGH I laugh I laugh You laugh We laugh Nothing matters Except this laughter we love Must know to be silly and happy
