fake news since 2006
Question to our fearless GI ‘Die Hard’ Bruce: Who’s John Mankowitz?! Rumor has it ‘Being John Malkovich’ is upset now:-) Enjoy your well-earned time off with family. And when a grain of sand tickles and lingers in your toes, recite this poem: (It’s by another favorite poet of mine Wislawa Szymborska)PS It’s ok. I’d vote for Bruce too;-)"View With a Grain of Sand We call it a grain of sand,but it calls itself neither grain nor sand.It does just fine, without a name,whether general, particular,permanent, passing,incorrect, or apt.Our glance, our touch means nothing to it.It doesn't feel itself seen and touched.And that it fell on the windowsillis only our experience, not its.For it, it is not different from falling on anything elsewith no assurance that it has finished fallingor that it is falling still.The window has a wonderful view of a lake,but the view doesn't view itself.It exists in this worldcolorless, shapeless,soundless, odorless, and painless.The lake's floor exists floorlessly,and its shore exists shorelessly.The water feels itself neither wet nor dryand its waves to themselves are neither singular nor plural.They splash deaf to their own noiseon pebbles neither large nor small.And all this beneath a sky by nature skylessin which the sun sets without setting at alland hides without hiding behind an unminding cloud.The wind ruffles it, its only reason beingthat it blows.A second passes.A second second.A third.But they're three seconds only for us.Time has passed like courier with urgent news.But that's just our simile.The character is inverted, his haste is make believe,his news inhuman."
