well, if the sonnet is done as written word.  but quite 
like cooking, bardic performance has that transitory thing 
going on.  you can be on top of it one day, and missing 
the mark another.  and i think we have all seen a lovely 
piece turned into a stinker by a bad performance.

of course, again like food, it's the stinkers they seem to 
talk about for years (and years and years). 8P
