“the river that made a lap behind our house
was the image of a soft glass
a man came and said:
    that lap the river is making… 
    is called meander 
it wasn’t the image of a glass snake making a lap behind the house any more
it was a meander
I think the name impoverish the image” 
Manoel de Barros
