First Line: Traveling with too much baggage is not a good idea


Traveling with too much baggage is not a good idea.
There are things you'd do well to repress,
veil, censor, push down into your unconscious.
Obviously an operation to be performed quite consciously.

Example: years later you've run into a boy you used to love,
who at the time was slender, blond, clever, and kind.
You know it: it's for him you undress on the Louvre bridge at night.
But today he doesn't know how much you betray him with himself.
