- n. Plural form of hemidemisemiquaver.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
As for me, I have become one of the ragtag band of hobos and lost souls of the city as I wander here and there with my hurdy-gurdy, playing my hemidemisemiquavers from an empty bandstand in the park while the panhandlers and rum-bums dance the villa-nella or raise their herky-jerky voices in a sing-a-ling.
I didn’t experience any recent senses-shattering “Road to Damascus” epiphanies nor did I have a dream where the disembodied voice of the city spoke to me (polyphonic hemidemisemiquavers – the cadence of Old Manila, the bluster of Pasig, the faraway cries for attention of Alabang), revealing secrets.
