Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

But it is shrouded, veiled: we must have made some ghastly error.

You mop your forehead with a rose, recommending its thorns.

Must we thrust ever onward, into perversity?

Only night knows for sure; the secret is safe with her.

You mop your forehead with a rose, recommending its thorns.

Research has shown that ballads were produced by all of society;

Only night knows for sure. The secret is safe with her:

the people, then, knew what they wanted and how to get it.

-from "Hotel Lautramont"
