I had a section with the title "Strayhorn's Lorca." Then I changed it to "Billy Strayhorn's Lorca." I guess I didn't trust my readers to know Strayhorn. Then, the next day, I realized that the first title had much better prosody, so I changed it back. Three trochees in a row sound awful, but two have a nice feel. Yes, it is hard work to be me. It takes me 24 hours a day.
