In an age of abstract experience, fornication
Is self-expression, adjunct to Christian euphoria,
we know our end
A packet of worm-seed, a garden of spent tissues.
What is this conversation, now secular,
A speech not mine yet speaking for me in
Daughters are the seed of occupations,
Of asperities, such as wills, deeds, mortgages,
Manhood like a lawyer with his formulas
Sesamés his youth for innocent acquittal.
