My Destination (transl. Alex Flores)

I called for my horse to be brought from the stable. The servant did not

understand me. I myself went into the stable, saddled my horse and mounted.

In the distance I heard a trumpet blast. I asked him what it meant but he

did not know and had not heard it. By the gate he stopped me and asked

"where are you riding to sir?" I answered "away from here, away from here,

always away from here. Only by doing so can I reach my destination." "Then

you know your destination" he asked. "Yes" I said "I have already said so,

'Away-From-Here' that is my destination." "You have no provisions with you"

he said. "I don't need any" I said. "The journey is so long that I will die

of hunger if I do not get something along the way. It is, fortunately, a

truely immense journey."
