Aspic HeartSamuel Amadon
Listen Mack, nor tough nor tart nor tackle will bring the bounty off. A busted diesel may swell with beef & sherry till two fall free the older hook but evermore shackles as constancy cools Manchurian, as water bricks, as our best mutton becomes hard where hardens of intestine linger, scars like bacon through the law & maw of her, our lady river— a swell in the stitch I hold no heart for & yet eagerly follow to every hole. The world was once an apple clearly, but time has took the parish flow & blows until we thicken well & heavy our bowel- choke, our silt sprains that clam the shell.
