Shine On, Hermann Weyl

“Be on the lookout for
Annie Dillard’s sequel to
Teaching a Stone to Talktitled
Teaching a Brick to Sing.”

William Butler Yeats —

“Poets and Wits about him drew;
‘What then?’ sang Plato’s ghost.
   ‘What then?’

‘The work is done,’
   grown old he thought,
‘According to my boyish plan;
Let the fools rage,
   I swerved in naught,
Something to perfection brought’;
But louder sang that ghost,
   ‘What then?’


Scarlett Johansson —

“Let’s give ’em somethin’
   to talk about,
A little mystery
   to figure out”

(Saturday Night Live,
 April 21, 2007)

Plato’s ghost —

“The clothes she wears,
   the sexy ways,
Make an old man wish
   for younger days
She knows she’s built
   and knows how to please
Sho ’nuff can knock
   a strong man to his knees

She’s a brick… house…
Mighty mighty,
   just lettin’ it all hang out
She’s a brick… house…
The lady’s stacked
   and that’s a fact,
Ain’t holdin’ nothin’ back.

Shake it down,
   shake it down now”
