// It's such a fine line // That keeps me searching // For a heart of gold //

…within a month:
Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears
Had left the flushing in her galled eyes,
She married…

But break, my heart;

for I

must hold

my tongue.

Those whom the gods would utterly destroy...

are tempted with cruel hopes of lasting joy.

Can you still hear your youngish self?

with heavy stone of a heart

mysteriously plucked out

sacrificed for so little

and now not so much hidden as

not in the way.

Department of State Facilities Security Plans & Policy Directorate: bravo.

My dear Tavy,

Your pious English habit of regarding the world

as a moral gymnasium built expressly to strengthen

your character in, occasionally leads you to think about

your own confounded principles when you should

be thinking about other people’s necessities.


G B Shaw, author.
