What is memory?
A palace of coral in a cordial glass
What is longing?
Water and blood
What is pain?
A diamond hidden among cubes of ice
What is the sound of rain?
A hotel room in Ostend papered with cancelled stamps
What is inspiration?
An atlas with each page pierced by a needle
What is sleep?
A dovecote filled with paper birds
What is homesickness?
A man with the map of the heavens on his back
What is loss?
A statue adrift in a sea of leaves
What is imagination?
Jewel boxes made of words
