Chan Vu, Bigger Than Code (and COming)

annoyance, he continued to tug
at the trunk till it yielded to his efforts.

A burst of wind and thunder followed,
and the hawks and vultures flew screaming away.

But these only gave place to a new foe;
for from the hole made by tearing up the tree

issued a furious serpent, and, darting at
Mandricardo, wound herself about his limbs

with a strain that almost crushed him. Fortune,
however, again stood his friend, for, writhing

under the folds of the monster, he fell backwards
into the hole, and from Orlando, and thus complete

the conquest of Hector's arms.

Mandricardo, having completed his story,
now turned to Rogero, and proposed that

arms should decide which of the two
was most worthy to bear the symbol of the Trojan knight.
President Laurent Gbagbo

God bless you

By the aid of his subservient demons
he reared a castle on an inaccessible height,
in the Pyrenean mountains, and to make it an
elf magnificent millennium.

Tell the truth, and so puzzle and confound your adversaries.
You teach your daughters the diameters of the planets
and wonder when you are done that they do not delight in your company.

Suppose the world were only one of God's jokes,
 would you work any the less to make it a good joke instead of a bad one?
Never contend with a man who has nothing to lose.
I have read your book and much like it.
To listen, by the sputtering, smoking fire:

"Now it's my turn to sing!"

And beyond, the same sound of bees
That only you and I can know. Les deux
The snowflakes are swirling, blotting out
Traces of those deep cuts lie thickly upon
Point, after all, when finally one reaches

The earth beneath his feet, in its dark cape,
His sightless eyes horribly watch the air;
The bees are buzzing,
Event, the end of the painted road ends up
Dismal, endless plain—
Yes. The obvious
This perfection, this absence.
