George Moore by Marianne Moore
In speaking of ‘aspiration,’
From the recesses of a pen more dolorous than blackness
Were you presenting us with one more form of imperturbable
Or was it self directed banter?
Took from you, your invisible, hot helmet of anaemia—
While you were filling your “little glass” from the
Of a transparent-murky, would-be-truthful “hobohemia”—
And then facetiously
Went off with it? Your soul’s supplanter,
The spirit of good narrative, flatters you, convinced that
in reporting briefly
One choice incident, you have known beauty other than that
of stys, on
Which to fix your admiration.
