Asleep at midnight, up by 4:45. Saddam's ugly mug on the tube. More rain in the offing.

"By and large, if a poet was good enough to gain admittance to Kokinshu, his style was, by definition, basically anonymous. ...The challenge to the sensitive observer posed by such oblique indications of authorship constitute, we may conjecture, one of the pleasures of poetry as game." --Helen McCullough, Brocade by Night (1985)
