Species of Adoration

***

In my youth her beauty impressed me.

****

I poured out my body for her.

*****

All I love is worth ransacking heaven and earth for a few coins.

****

 When the service was over — finding her gone —I followed her and learned in doses what I desired.

******

 We communicated with sighs, which we pretended not to understand.

***

 She was ashamed, noticing that the linen was stained

****

 It was natural that I should love her—her death, a slight of hand —collusion between us.   

****

Among innumerable cameras watching us, was hidden the solemn gravity of love.

***

 What she pleases is dangerous….when does one know when one is safe?

**

 There are advantages to being depleted

*

 Victims of love are the least able to resist occupation.

**

 Discord, but another name for her affect on me.

***

 There are peculiar formations permitting us to glide over each other.

****

 Drawn apart produces great agony —in me — the more aggravated.

**

 She returned my passions with a red hot iron.

*

 Poems amorous: torn.

**

 In time her intrigues embittered my mind…I took my mind to pieces and examined its varied compartments.

*****

 The entire history of affection is expressed by an illusion of intervening connections.    

****

Expel all delusions!

***

 I have been pierced at regular intervals. gain and again….

*****

 

 Paris is no longer in danger.

 

paris is no longer in danger.
