when disciplines collide

A little while ago, my friend lauren e-c posted a Pantoum (a poem with every line repeated three lines later, except for the 1st and 3rd lines which are repeated at the end), a type of poem that I was unaware of prior to that but kind of intrigued by. Then yesterday, I heard a musical Pantoum! It was a movement of a piano trio (piano, violin, and cello) by Ravel, and it was totally cool. I was just psyched that my new knowledge came into play so soon, and I thought it was a really innovative idea to pattern a piece of music after a specific poetic form.
In other news, my teacher told me a dirty joke in my lesson today. Weird.
