Pyrous willow pyx is split,
And body spilt is silk and claret.
Sylphid banquet, hawthorn ringed,
To glut my velvet tongue.
All alike are singing bloody malice.
Vatic flaylings, oriflammes
For Cyrenaic balm, alight!
And take each one, ciborium and chalice.

But lo, my leopard mount is kobold.
Body spilt is arsenic.
The greedy specks have sucked the dew
And let the wax dry 'pon my wick.
Each barren stoup of shuttered laps,
Each tethered flap,
Hath cleft my heart in twain.
Pain is useless,
Pleasure vain.
The tusks of love are plain.

Cherubim in periwigs and rouge fly at thy verges, waiting.
Gavelling ad gloriam. Away!
Let all of us who hibernate stay ceased from the Praetorium.
Codices, disilluminate.
Pythian augurs, disimmaculate.
Neolithe, abjure thy gifts of gyrant clay and glyph.
And lastly take the argot from my lips.
