Poem of the day
by Dante Gabriel Rossetti
LADY, in thy proud eyes
There is a weary look,
As if the spirit we know through them
Were daunted with rebuke
To think that the heart of man henceforth
Is read like a read book.
Lady, in thy lifted face
The solitude is sore;
Read complete poem
Having been unpopular in high school is not just cause for book publications.

John Dantzler: Though I’ve done them myself, I’m fairly tired of the “Joan Jett or Pat Benatar?” type tweets. Feel like replying, “Block or mute?” Let’s do some creative ones instead: “Steely Dan or pie?” “The Kinks or world peace?” “Journey or stamp collecting?”
Carl Draper: Sounds like 2, possibly 3 guitar tracks
