For Emily, wherever we find her

Can one go rabid with repression?

To die alone, foaming at the mouth—

Electric in the brain,

Suppressing every wicked impulse,

Until they take up arms

and drag you writhing in agony—

When you would have given

The whole of your holy life,

For an unquiet night of passion.
