Borges and me

“The other one, the one called Borges, is the one things happen to…Little by little, I am giving over everything to him, though I am quite aware of his perverse custom of falsifying and magnifying things…Years ago I tried to free myself from him and went from the mythologies of the suburbs to the games with time and infinity, but those games belong to Borges now and I shall have to imagine other things. Thus my life is a flight and I lose everything and everything belongs to oblivion, or to him. I do not know which of us has written this page.”
