Wow. I actually spotted this resemblance while I was reading the gloss (had I been really clever, I would have spotted it while reading the original). I think the line "To surrender, I say fuck that!" is what clued me in. I've been a SR fan since hearing him (rivetingly) at the Clearwater Festival, and then later in extreme close-up in Spencertown, NY. -- John Cowan One art/there is/no less/no more/All things/to do/with sparks/galore --Douglas Hofstadter
