"Lentement, et tres tendrement, quoy que mesuré"

- Couperin: 14ème ordre, livre III

1.

Tyranny of rapports; absolute

of the hotbed quenched monotonously and

grey your undoing of my night

in full night the lunary confirms

true being, wanting likewise

at battle to disconcert. Before wanting the

rapporting of your grey dreams, I quenched

the oil-lamp that from the corner criticized

this incandescent evil in your

white masonry embrace and if the drill

infallible of my scant thoughts

indivisible defense of the filter believe

me: incomplete

the description of your illness, the rest

the beasts were slaughtered in the back of the

plague-afflicted shop, for chance that

in the hand gives in, when flesh quickly

What pretty poppies they are. They spiritualize

Rio Claro: mechanized center: flowers (they

have no name) extend a friendly hand, drizzly

and sad (if you are) you extend an arm to the

wind and the rare rain.

Then you sense yourself superseded: they've snatched all
