How to forget?
By looking for an owl in poems,
by quarrelling with a camel,
by leaving in Egypt,
by playing chess, by learning Spanish,
by visiting an aquarium,
by attacking a watchmaker's shop,
by recording westerns,
by eating spaghettis, by exploring South America,
by speaking to the butterflies,
by giving some money to works,
By listening to Beethoven,
by lighting its TV,
by playing soccer, by asking God,
by cooking a roast pork in oranges,
by going to the cinema,
by taking itself for Picasso,
by watching the girls dancing,
How forgetting?
There is one thousand solutions
Quite more useless ones and others.

Yann~
I love this!
This line is too cool~
     "by taking itself for Picasso"
As is the last line ~
     "Quite more useless ones and others."

I have a strange feeling that I have experienced and done all those things.

You're right there - there's a thousand and one things to bury yourself in, just so you will FORGET TO REMEMBER a thousand and one odd things that will only hurt if you try to remember them.

Now I have forgotten what it was I tried to remember when I begun this reply.
