Hallow Crystal Banquett

Irish redux

just might
looking at gay or
crazy stuff

to hierarchy.

Funny thing...
your letter had page found
  of lotus and no wadsworth
  of quantify he chrysanthemum
  of crash on time or late
  of beginner gibraltar infantrymen.

You is feathery
  is chancy an carusa
  is septa in desorption
  is as coloratura breakwater chessboard...
  is the correct or no?

didn’t understand it.

Consensus this: In addition, it's getting increasingly difficult for me to give up my mother language.
       - Kiribati E. Ethelred

Named by her father, Louis Isidore Duperrey, upon his return from exploring the South Pacific Islands, Mrs. Kiribati E. Ethelred née Duperrey (1816–1885) received her formal education in geology from the Université de Provence Aix-Marseille. She graduated with top rankings in 1840 and worked alongside Swiss geologist Albert Heim (whose work would later influence Alfred Lothar Wegener) on the field work and microscopic study of Mesozoic and Paleogene/Neogene sediments in the Helvetic zone of the Alps (including the famous Glarus overthrust). The research life, however, did not hold Mrs. Ethelred’s interest for long as she frequently disappeared into Heim’s basement to read novels (especially those by François-René de Chateaubriand ~ whose father was also a sea captain) and write short stories and poems. Of her œuvre, there are two pieces that stand out as her greatest contributions to literature. The first is her poem “Voix ambiguë d'un cœur qui au zéphyr préfère les jattes de kiwis”, as it is known and loved by nearly all French students of typography and font development. The second, “Cantami o diva del pelide Achille l'ira funesta”, not only remains the longest running commedia at the Nebiolo in Torino, but also carries the mystique of being dedicated to her secret lover in the Aosta Valley.
