I have not forgotten yet
Skin that chokes like mignonette,
I who drank myself to death
With the apples of your breath,
I who blasphemously went
Into your beauty's tenement,
I who eagerly confessed
Upon the altar of your breast.

I who falter in the snare
Of your canary-colored hair,
Sacredly could not forget
Skin that chokes like mignonette.
