veritatem quaerens

never tell a wo
man  whom you see
even in reflec
tions  visions and
dreams

her jealousy does
not know the rounded
head of the gedan
ken  the rough sur
face

of your weltanschau
ung  instead give
her a nib and a
doublet  give her
reason

to sew  sketch and
follow  give her
reason for song and
reason to retch and
swal

low  but never
let her know
