engraved appraised and upraised
so engaged you became
displaced in haste and surname
sir, her name hath claim lain

from thumb counts three like clicked feet
efface we from memory
unsure unchaste and waylaid
in vague ways with what remains

impressed with pleasures of the flesh
and slept in beds youd soon regret
his genuflect and pledged to death
though not who youd come to expect

"as you kneel before him love"

"through hopes through harms ive dealt you"

"with spent affections on your tongue"

"through borrowed arms youve clung to"

"sunbed-skinned and lost of love"

"now helpless to remind you"

"as below so too above"

"theres room for two inside"

you strive for happiness i guess-
though never blessed of much success
wed to abreast yet whod suspect
which strains still swell beneath your dress
