112| To O'ergreen Abysm

Rachel Levens

PDF

I, I sense that my neglect changes you.
Your vulgar tongue calls me —
I love how strongly you dispense 112 praises
Upon my right brow
And so methinks you do wrong.
Besides my good sense and/or all my care
I must pity none that know my scandal.
Or, or strive for my shames.
Y’are alive nor dead in my world.
Well to all-the-world voices that mark me bad,
You’re the critic and are ill —
Who stopped my sonnet.
And so throw my profound purpose to all to others
None of which must allow
And/or to my bred doth flatter
Are, are else stamped to adder’s steel’d impression.
