I come to writing


to see the rabbit

come out

of his hole.


When I have found a magical place

I wait…for hours

Sometimes, the magic comes, but usually, it doesn’t.

It doesn’t matter how patient I am

Magic has no Master—

I understand it,

but I don’t control it.


All a man needs

is to find one white rabbit

and wait for it.


Traveling, is the surest way

to bottle-up experiences,

but if the cork gets stuck

it can drive a drunk insane.

Drink your own words, and don’t write them down,


if others are meant to enjoy them

they will flow freely, like water turned into wine.


We have experiences

but we don’t write them all down

Otherwise, we would bore ourselves.


A photographer

doesn’t capture the moment

He steals

what nobody else sees.
