Ancrene Wiseass

A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

Poetry Friday: Haiku

Who doesn't like haiku?

Nifty site over here called the Asahi Haikuist Network where people from around the world submit poems on selected subjects. I like this one by high-school student Garrett Schneider very much:

A fox and I met
once on a darkening path--
does he remember?
