Subject(s): Deception


Oh Curves, meanderings,
Tricks of the liar,
What skill more gentle
Than this delay?

May I be your guide?
I know what I do,
And my fell design
Will not injure you . . .

(Although she smiles
So confidently,
Such liberty
Bewilders her!)

Oh Curves, meanderings,
Tricks of the liar,
I will make you wait
For the gentlest word.
