CONTEMPLATION


His battalion is his
Purgatory
His resistance to
Memory
A spiritual misery
His talent
Expired
Content in the
Torment
Tracing itself along the
The slumbers of
Chance
Lightly characterized
By serene
Ambition
At last undertaken
In the feeble
Manifolds of

Victory
Gripped by
Sensuality
An imperceptible
Permanence
A nimble mediality
Of sunburnt
Serpents
Outnumbered only
By the blushing
Bade
Of Belief

Sacred
As the feminine temple
Indulgent
In her proprietous
Monopoly
Tormented by her
Brow
Recognized in her
Torment
An excess of
Light
