    Parched be sour pallets That condemn the thirst And--paralyzed, the hands That squelch To quell-- How different from to choke? And to hush, as to Behead Pointing finger guiding heart May just as well wring dry To extract juices from the brain, To such veins free of milk And of the ...

    Sentenced to surface, to bob-- To float but not to feel And to misplace my sacred fishes On poles I cannot reel Sweetened fruit a fiendish fruit, An imp with timely feet Scratches fingers, with such joy, Relishing defeat Ripples elevate-- and retract And deserts never grace Nor shall t...
