DAYS OF 1896

    He was utterly disgraced.
    A sexual inclination of his strictly forbidden and scorned
    (innate nonetheless) was the reason:
    society was exceedingly prudish.
    He gradually lost what little money he had;
    then his standing, and his good name.
    He was nearly thirty without ever a whole year spent in work
    at least not work anyone knew.
    Sometimes he earned his living from mediations
    that were deemed shameful.
    He ended up the type with whom if seen too often,
    no doubt you’d be seriously compromised.
    But this isn’t everything. It wouldn’t be fair.
    The memory of his beautyis deserving of much more.
    For there’s another side and if seen from this
    he appears an amiable sort;
    he appears a simple and genuine child of love,
    who above honor and good name
    unquestioningly placed the pure pleasure of his pure flesh.
    Above his good name?
    For society which was exceedingly prudish
    made foolish connections.
