someone like you - Roald Dahl

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain - Psycho Killer at the BBC Proms

Lamb to the Slaughter

“This is going to be a bit of a shock to you, I’m afraid,” he said. “But I’ve thought about it a good deal and I’ve decided the only thing to do is tell you right away. I hope you won’t blame me too much.”

And he told her. It didn’t take long, four or five minutes at most, and she say very still through it all, watching him with a kind of dazed horror as he went further and further away from her with each word.

“So there it is,” he added. “And I know it’s kind of a bad time to be telling you, bet there simply wasn’t any other way. Of course I’ll give you money and see you’re looked after. But there needn’t really be any fuss. I hope not anyway. It wouldn’t be very good for my job.”

Her first instinct was not to believe any of it, to reject it all. It occurred to her that perhaps he hadn’t even spoken, that she herself had imagined the whole thing. Maybe, if she went about her business and acted as though she hadn’t been listening, then later, when she sort of woke up again, she might find none of it had ever happened.

“I’ll get the supper,” she managed to whisper, and this time he didn’t stop her.

When she walked across the room she couldn’t feel her feet touching the floor. She couldn’t feel anything at all- except a slight nausea and a desire to vomit. Everything was automatic now-down the steps to the cellar, the light switch, the deep freeze, the hand inside the cabinet taking hold of the first object it met. She lifted it out, and looked at it. It was wrapped in paper, so she took off the paper and looked at it again.

A leg of lamb.

All right then, they would have lamb for supper. She carried it upstairs, holding the thin bone-end of it with both her hands, and as she went through the living-room, she saw him standing over by the window with his back to her, and she stopped.

“For God’s sake,” he said, hearing her, but not turning round. “Don’t make supper for me. I’m going out.”

At that point, Mary Maloney simply walked up behind him and without any pause she swung the big frozen leg of lamb high in the air and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head.

She might just as well have hit him with a steel club.

She stepped back a pace, waiting, and the funny thing was that he remained standing there for at least four or five seconds, gently swaying. Then he crashed to the carpet.

The violence of the crash, the noise, the small table overturning, helped bring her out of he shock. She came out slowly, feeling cold and surprised, and she stood for a while blinking at the body, still holding the ridiculous piece of meat tight with both hands.

All right, she told herself. So I’ve killed him.

das vantagens de se ter amigos latino americanos

"Estoy haciendo yoga, mucho yoga. dia por medio creo,
mas o menos, derepente aparece algun amigo y me interrumpe la rutina,
pero en general siento que avanzo con la practica siento mi espalda y
el peso de mi cuerpo ...

a ratos pienso que me aliena un poco de la
realidad, siento que me encierro en mi pieza mientras afuera los dias
se ponen cada vez mejores ... si!! esta saliendo el sol ya aca y me
voy pedaleando en mangas cortas a la U! ... el resto del tiempo me la
paso encerrado, leyendo de computadores, de sistemas inteligentes y
de escritores perdidos."

poesia pura! adooooro! xxx

Maria Bethânia - Oração ao Tempo

Oração Ao Tempo

Caetano Veloso

És um senhor tão bonito
Quanto a cara do meu filho
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Vou te fazer um pedido
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

Compositor de destinos
Tambor de todos os rítmos
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Entro num acordo contigo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

Por seres tão inventivo
E pareceres contínuo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
És um dos deuses mais lindos
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

Que sejas ainda mais vivo
No som do meu estribilho
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Ouve bem o que te digo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

Peço-te o prazer legítimo
E o movimento preciso
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Quando o tempo for propício
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

De modo que o meu espírito
Ganhe um brilho definido
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
E eu espalhe benefícios
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

O que usaremos prá isso
Fica guardado em sigilo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Apenas contigo e comigo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

E quando eu tiver saído
Para fora do teu círculo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Não serei nem terás sido
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

Ainda assim acredito
Ser possível reunirmo-nos
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Num outro nível de vínculo
Tempo tempo tempo tempo...

Portanto peço-te aquilo
E te ofereço elogios
Tempo tempo tempo tempo
Nas rimas do meu estilo
Tempo tempo tempo temp

Sobre o peso dos meus amores, 1990

Eu vejo a distância
Eu vejo os perigos
Eu vejo os outros gritando
Eu vejo um
Eu vejo o outro
Não sei qual amo mais
Sob o peso dos meus amores
