Awake since 23:30 (yes, I did go to bed at 20:00 got to sleep sometime). It didn't work.
I've been reading poetry all night. I have a book of Poe's poems and am going slowly through them. I am interspersing it with some interesting stuff by a young man named Sidik who writes in Arabic of some sort then translates it into English. It is a bit bleak but has the same appeal as film noir
it is more of an intellectual appreciation of the message than of the medium in which it is expressed.
