Katastrofa, if you like Grochowiak, it's esspecially for you

Rozmowa o poezji

D z i e w c z y n a:
Czy pan ją wi­dzi? Czy ona się śni?
Czy też nad­bie­ga - na­gła jak z pa­gór­ka?

P o e t a:
Ona wy­ni­ka z bro­da­wek ogór­ka...

D z i e w c z y n a:
Pan kpi.
Pan ją je­dwab­nie - pan ją jak mo­ty­la
Po ta­kich zło­tych i okrą­głych la­sach...
To jest jak z Daf­nis bar­dzo czu­ła chwi­la...

P o e t a:
Ow­szem. Jak ostro
Ca­ło­wa­ny ta­sak.

D z i e w c z y n a:
Ro­zu­miem pana. Z wierz­chu ta iro­nia,
A spodem czu­łość pod­peł­za ku ser­cu...

P o e t a:
Dla­cze­go z pani jest taka pi­wo­nia,
Co chce za­wzię­cie być bu­tel­ką per­fum?...

It's not about love. It's about being yourself.

Maybe it's Virginia Woolf when she was an undergrad.

Was Joe Biden trolling Britain with his choice of poetry – or choosing his words perfectly?

Or calling for an uprising? Naughty Joe...
But "independence" will likely mean moving from the British to EU rule ;-)

Well, he is Irish.
And he quotes Seamus Heaney.
His family home is about 15 km from my cottage.

// Someone tell Boris who W.B. Yeats is.

And then, the counterpoint: Biden is nothing like his UK counterpart, who famously reached for the most insensitive lines imaginable on a foreign trip, reciting Kipling’s paean to imperialism in a Myanmar temple. There is actual footage of Boris Johnson being told off by the British ambassador. It’s hard to imagine Biden being told off even when he was at school.
