  1. Ik ben hier heel enthousiast over! Simon and Garfunkel forever. Hun prachtig nummer ‘Dangling Conversation’ gaat hier ook over, overigens.
    I present you:

    “And you read your Emily Dickinson,
    And I my Robert Frost,
    And we note our place with bookmarkers
    That measure what we’ve lost.
    Like a poem poorly written
    We are verses out of rhythm,
    Couplets out of rhyme,
    In syncopated time
    Lost in the dangling conversation
    And the superficial sighs,
    Are the borders of our lives.”

      • Understandable. Although being one of my all-time favourite Smiths song, I don’t really understand why you picked ‘William, It Was Really Nothing’ though. Last I checked that song was about someone discouraging a friend to marry. Unless you have another theory?
        ‘Shakespeare’s Sister’ might also have been a good option, non?
