An Acrostic


Virility, a distant recollection surgically removed with

Impunity, guilt free nocturnal nubilian necklines reconciled with

Virginity, virtuosity’s nearest cousin practicing

Incestuous deeds in the mind’s deepest

Shafts of entombment

Emotional extinction whose forbearance

Cuts the delicate ties that bind hearts

Together with an angelic intricacy

Infusing the spirit no longer, now withered to dust

Only to expose the crackling raw shell whose desperate search for a

Neoplatonic pathway ends in a nightmare of self indulgence
