Subject(s): Sitwell, Edith (1887-1964)


Round — oblong — like jam —
Terse as virulent hermaphrodites;
Calling across the sodden twisted
Edifices of importunity
Sway like Parmesan before the half-tones
Of Episcopalian Michaelmas;
Bodies are so impossible to see in retrospect —
And yet I know the well of truth
Is gutted like pratchful Unicorn.
Sog, sog, sog — why is my mind amphibious?
That's what it is.
