if not an ever-evolving

thing? I’m sorry, I meant

and meant “what is your

Depending on how
you spin its carefully

cleaned and oiled
chambers; SO LET US

not talk softly of love
or of your Dixie Derringer

or even of the silk pillow
under which I know

you’ve tucked it—you,
with all your amour fou,

as though that act
still works with me.
