  • Epigraph:
    I cannot see her tonight
    I have to give her up
    So I will eat fugu

    - Buson
  • Author's note: Fugu: Japanese for pufferfish (literally translating to 'river pig'), which has neurotoxic properties. Also refers to the notorious dish made from the animal which, if not prepared properly, can cause death by asphyxiation.
