Mille trecento ventisette, a puntoIn 2013, at exactly the eight hour of the sixth of December, I am entering the labyrinth, and I too see no way out — at least not before Monday. I am entering the grading zone. See you next week.
su l’ora prima, il dì sesto d’aprile,
nel laberinto intrai, né veggio ond’esca.
In 1327, at exactly
the first hour of the sixth of April,
I entered the labyrinth, and I see no way out.
Petrarch 211, from a poem on first seeing Laura (my translation)
