A Musical Offering

In Iran, or so I have learned, one is given a task with the saying "This kisses your hand," as though the object--not the person offering the object--were begging the favor of your attention.

So, earlier this afternoon, a DVD copy of Werner Herzog's documentary on Carlo Gesualdo kissed my hand, begging to be returned to the video store. I told it, and the person offering the DVD, to kiss my ass.

But I returned it anyway.
