academic exercises

I'm a total nerd.  Can't help it and don't want to change it.  Even though I'm a mathematician, I've always had a soft spot for poetry (writing and reading).  Mary Oliver's work brings me to tears. Anyway, my friend, the poet Robert West, has taken to challenging us on Facebook to reinterpret famous poetry and novels as haiku.  First up was W. B. Yeats; here was my entry:

I would totally be listening to these dudes, but that girl is hot.

And, in the Faulkner category:

I never finished The Sound and the Fury. Too disjointed to read.

Your entries are welcome.
