My body was electric
The Fuhrer’s splendour pouring through me
I was an angel in Bavaria
This is what I want: art, love, and children
Do not stoop to offer less than everything
We were big drinkers, bad spellers, fast spenders
We were spoiled children
I loved Lytton Strachey for all time
No matter he’s a sodomite
And I a person of separate artistic degree
My body’s the transgressor
Or was it but the drink
“What’s all the noise about?”Gran asked,
“It’s just the dogs” I said
“Good writing is like guilt
But I cannot find that way again
So cook and serve and drink and make them laugh”
