A handsome young man looks back at him
from the photo of his own ID
time is ruthless
the girl on reception informs him
“Your room is ready now
a suite with a seaview
the sea of your problems”
he heard it loud and clear
in perfect Spanish
the following hours shall be eternal

He grabs the suitcase and no choice but
to go up the lift
Out of simple respect for etymology
the room has a number that he intended to forget
just as he also intends to forget
that it was he himself who expressly requested it

he checks his mobile for the millionth time
nobody has remembered him in the last 26 seconds
it’s been a long time

he still doesn’t know
but he has just decided to do it
as if it were easy
