pantomime

 

Pierrot hath nothing of Clitander
downs a flagon stintless
and empirical broaches a pâté
Cassander the avenue up
sheds a tear unheralded
for his nephew fortuneless
that horrid Harlequin melds
the rape of Columbine
and quadruple pirouette
Columbine muses surprised
to feel a heart in the breeze
and hear voices in the heart
