ok so I see that title and I immediately am reminded of Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb. your profile says you’re a musician so I’d be surprised if you didn’t make the same connection. if words are borrowed verbatim, should there not be at least a tip of the hat, maybe in a footnote, to the original artist?

not a criticism, I’m really curious what people think, is it different with poetry? I write non-fiction and I’m always careful to give credit where due, and to attribute all the sources that I consciously use.
