I am an actor of poetry, thought stunts my growth; 
I clip each hair namelessly, trusting every moment
And discolour my scalp under the whispering Sun 
That seems to melt, though not to ‘awake' or ‘please'; 
The white cremations sow the embryo unto all the states 
Of ignorance, where electrical hordes bustle independently; 
And malignant sparks of fat, filth ridden bouts of people idly dote, 
Swarming like hollow profligates to watch in revelry, nothing but themselves
And I bellow my fortunes on the stage! 
(When fear collects it's beneficiaries) 
And my friend's eyes arch over me in submissive discern;

He must be unnerved by the fair hair growing on my chin.
