R.I.P. Mimbo, long live Mrithi


Who's a duck's favorite poet?

Canard Manley Hopkins.

"Canard" being my favorite new word, rich with many meanings, French origin, a pleasing sound, and, well, ducks.

Ducks and other water fowl also enjoy Hafiz:

You are the Sun in drag.
You are God hiding from yourself.
Remove all the "mine" - that is the veil.
Why ever worry about anything?
Listen to what your friend Hafiz knows for certain:
The appearance of this world is a Magi's brilliant trick, though its affairs are nothing into nothing.
You are a divine elephant with amnesia
Trying to live in an ant hole.
Sweetheart, O sweetheart
You are God in Drag!
