'Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.'
― Virginia Woolf, 'A Room of One's Own'

have you prayed, desdemona?
(oh no, what prayer more
could one give this
holy house of
word and song)

have you prayed, desdemona?
my heart beats faster as my lover's gaze strikes me
and spotlights blaze, nails bitten to the quick
and a silence sharp as knives)

have you prayed, desdemona?
(only for the night to end thus -
i am here, among this
chorus of cheers, this
rush of joy and approval,
sweet as sin -
therefore, i have prayed, my lord.)
