nothing she could say would make him feel,
nothing she could feel would make him speak;
he told her long ago that he would leave,
but now the moment’s here, and she grows weak

he’s heady with libidinous intent,
his brief flirtation with celebrity –
he cast his countenance off to the winds,
the many faces of
his treachery
