Viaggiare, è proprio utile, fa lavorare l’immaginazione.
Tutto il resto è delusione e fatica.
Il viaggio che ci è dato è interamente immaginario.
Ecco los angeles sua forza.

Va dalla vita alla morte. Uomini, bestie, città e cose, è tutto inventato.
È un romanzo, nient’altro che una storia fittizia.
Lo cube Littré, lui non si sbaglia mai.

E poi in ogni caso tutti possono fare altrettanto.
Basta chiudere gli occhi.

È dall’altra parte della vita.
