Athwart the somber luau
yes you are one of its dark beacons
I was born in the sign of war and it's there
that I feel my best, Bela
is diff'rent from the swerving weather
yet lay the table for dinner, Titanic
it is adventure
and it is the chance or none
be among the few to herald it by name
Name for a band: Second-Rate Scourges.

"Rani Graff: Tell me something we don’t know about Ted Chiang.
Ted Chiang: I’m left-handed."
