As Long As We Are Naming Names

20 Jun

I found this lovely stanza from a poem on the delightfully cute but thoughtful blog operated by someone tagged with the equally cute but thoughtful name—Kirbanita. Damned if I don't wonder what she could tell me about Gabriel now.

And who was that elegant feller,
They said, in the shiny gear?
The things they said about Gabriel
Were hardly fit to hear.

I must say, those four lines rank up there with Genet's lines about the soldier who is to come.
