a needle's sympathy / the kindness of a gun / the monster in your head / the truth from which you run
that was beautiful - two parts struck me the most. the seeing of the woman who could be your sister - i have run into this phenomena in almost every "ethnicity", cuz we're all a hodge-podge and people should *remember* that in the US, a country built OF that hodge-podge.and your descriptor of Dawn - almost as loving as Homer, that was. just... poetic. is that actually posted solely in English, or is it Arabic translated, or an Arabic translation offered, or what? i have had people transcribe passages of the Quo'ran for me (i have an Arabic-English version, but it never seems quite, well, right, in the English copy). people say that Spanish is so lyrical that a soap commercial sounds like a love-song; in my experience of Arabic-that-has-been-properly-translated, Arabic lends itself a whole nother level of lyricism...
My uncle looks like Chatami ;)
You're right about Farsi and Arabic- they both have a songlike quality to them, and the structure of Arabic (I don't know about Farsi) lends itself to poetic turns of phrase while ordering a bean burrito.Thank you.

Comments are for you guys, not for me. Say what you will. Don't feel compelled to stay on topic, I enjoy it when comments enter Tangentville or veer off into Non Sequitur Town. Just keep it polite, okay?I am attempting to use blogger's new comment spam feature. If you don't immediately see your comment, it is being held in spam, I will get it out next time I check the filter. Unless you are Dennis Markuze, in which case you're never seeing your comment.
