Don’t believe our outlines, forget them and begin from your own words. As if you are the first to write poetry or the last poet.
If you read our work, let it not be an extension of our airs, but to correct our errs in the book of agony.
Don’t ask anyone: Who am I? You know who your mother is. As for your father, be your own.
Truth is white, write over it with a crow’s ink. Truth is black, write over it with a mirage’s light.
If you want to duel with a falcon soar with the falcon.
If you fall in love with a woman, be the one, not she, who desires his end.

One thousand birds in the hand don’t equal one bird that wears a tree.
A poem in a difficult time is beautiful flowers in a cemetery.

The road is long like an ancient poet’s night: plains and hills, rivers and valleys. Walk according to your dream’s measure: either a lily follows you or the gallows.
Your tasks are not what worry me about you. I worry about you from those who dance over their children’s graves, and from the hidden cameras in the singers’ navels.

From now on, your only guardian is a neglected future.
Don’t think, when you melt in sorrow like candle tears, of who will see you or follow your intuition’s light. Think of yourself: is this all of myself?

I am back after some days in the high mountains, far for everything, looking for a path to follow. Back after having my computer k.o. during more than a week. Back after celebrating my birthday with family and friends in a perfect sunny day.

Ya estoy de vuelta,después de un retiro en la montaña, para pensar o no pensar en nada. Tras tener el ordenador estropeado por casi una semana, y tras haber celebrado mi cumpleaños con amigos y familia en un perfecto día soleado.
I am back to show that the more stunning architecture I have found is that built by nature.
