10 years of solitude | I once met a girl…

October 4th, 2011 by JoeQ 1 comment »

Maria has written a beautiful piece about our Morse (he is OURS, but feel free to possess as well).  Also, my previous post on the 4-line Limerick was implicitly dedicated to Morse. I think he would have enjoyed it, being an aficionado of the form.

Thank you, Maria. Well done! There is so much to say, and so little keyboard, much less literary, talent on my part.

Beijos e abraços para todos.

From Richard Brennerman’s eldest daughter:  

There was a young man from Lahore
Whose limericks stopped at line four.
When asked why this was,
He responded, “Because.”

ode em tarde de lua cheia a três mulheres mortas

November 7th, 2010 by JoeQ No comments »

(por André Pires)

minha avó partiu
quando eu ainda tinha dezoito anos
levada por um câncer
ao piano com ela
eu tocava
no secondo
a estudiantina de waldteufel

(na marseillaise o primo era meu
e o secondo era dela)

minha mãe partiu
quando eu tinha já cinqüenta e oito anos
levada por outro câncer
ao piano com ela
eu tocava
no primo
a mesma estudiantina de waldteufel

(e ainda no primo
a mesma marseillaise)

minha filha partiu quando eu fazia sessenta anos
levada da breca
ao piano com ela
toquei
eu no secondo
a completa marseillaise
a introdução a coda e o estrebilho
da estudiantina

(em ambas
ela tocou o primo)

a quatro mãos
visitei
o paraíso terrestre
para isso
ter rastros

(que dó)

This quote was just too good not to share:

“Giving sophisticated models and fast computers to traders is like giving handguns and tequila to teenage boys. Only complete mayhem can result and as we saw recently, complete mayhem did result.”

Update: another gem
OK, now what?
