Borges & Borges

30 years ago
Jorge Luis Borges died.
His tombstone remains.
The grave of this German namesake
who died five years later,
does not exist anymore.
This Borges was obviously no famous writer.

Jorge Luis Borges (24 August 1899 – 14 June 1986)

  1. I found this:

    “Through the years, a man peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, tools, stars, horses, and people,” Mr. Borges said. “Shortly before his death, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the image of his own face.”
