I think Emily might be right*

The soul selects her own society,
Then shuts the door;
On her divine majority
Obtrude no more.

Unmoved, she notes the chariot's pausing
At her low gate;
Unmoved, an emperor is kneeling
Upon her mat.

I've known her from an ample nation
Choose one;
Then close the valves of her attention
Like stone.

I'm not usually one to argue with Emily, but...

Perhaps that kneeling emperor
Would have a shot
At prying ope your closéd valves
If he were hot.

You do have a point there, Brooks.

Kneeling is the best way in.

BrooksNYC said...

A kneeling emperor is a start, but you can do better.

Rooting for you.
