IX. The Heart Asks Pleasure First

IX.

The heart asks pleasure first,
And then, excuse from pain;
And then, those little dynamos
That deaden suffering;

And then, to go to bed;
And then, using lightning
From atop the castle’s spire,
A monster brain, awakening.

 

The monster-less version—or, more accurately, the alternate monster. Not to be confused with the song from the 1993 movie “The Piano.”
