"As far as I know"
The mountains, Han Yü writes, are:
Scattered like loose titlesAs far as I know, this combination of trance-inducing repetitive rhyme and hypersimilitude would not be attempted again for another 1,100 years, until the Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro's modernist extravaganza Altazor.
Or running together like converging spokes,
Off keel like rocking boats
Or in full stride like horses at the gallop;
Back to back as though offended,
Face to face as though lending a hand,
—Eliot Weinberger, NYRB

Have I made the NYRBQ joke yet?
(Hmm...sort of, sort of not...Please help make this joke a reality.)
