Note:
(From episode 18 Penelope, Ulysses by James Joyce)

YES BECAUSE HE NEVER DID A THING LIKE THAT BEFORE AS ASK TO get his breakfast in bed with a couple of eggs since the City arms hotel when he used to be pretending to be laid up with a sick voice doing his highness to make himself interesting to that old faggot Mrs Riordan that he thought he had a great leg of and she never left us a farthing all for masses for herself and her soul greatest miser ever was actually afraid to lay out 4d for her methylated spirit telling me all her ailments she had too much old chat in her about politics and earthquakes and the end of the world let us have a bit of fun first God help the world if all the women were her sort down on bathing-suits and low-necks of course nobody wanted her to wear I suppose she was pious because no man would look at her twice I hope I'll never be like her a wonder she didn't want us to cover our faces but she was a well-educated woman certainly and...

2- Sketch for Acappella [In memoriam Ahmad Shamlou]

Text:
in a land unknown
at a time yet not arrived.
Thus, I was born
within the forest of beast and rock.
I realized that there was no tiding
for in between stood a mirage
My heart
in void
started beating.
I abandoned the cradle of reiteration
in a land with no bird, no spring.
My first journey was a return.

Ahmad Shamlou
