"The heart, catalectic though it be, does glow"
The heart, catalectic though it be, does glow,
responds to every midnight bell within you.
This is a discourse on reading heat,
the flushed char of burned moments one sees
after the sexton's lamp flows
over the body's dark book.
There is suspicion
here that violet
From "Desire's Persistence" by Jay Wright
Phryne, Artur Grottger, 1867
