In summa: one incrusted on my inner cartulary
I polish the indelicate parts. I wish to believe
in its beauty: the ritz of ranunculus. I want the
years with you to not seem wasted. I long for
flecks of falsehood to coat our connection. Will
memory and her munificence be complaisant in
allowing me to ply on this path?
