Happy New Year

The Sinhalese/Tamil New Year is always on my birthday and one of my dearest friends is Sri Lankan, so I celebrate it each year. 🙂 Here is an ars poetica by a Sri Lankan poet, found at BOMB Magazine:

The Poet

by Lakdasa Wikkramasinha

He is the one that, tossing a bomb into
The crowd, takes notes;
The one who, from an unseen distance
Levels on the tripod that black rifle
With sights that see as far as his soul
