by Browning, Robert teeth, suck my lips in tight, and paint 
To please them--sometimes do and sometimes don't; 
For, doing most, there's pretty sure to come 
A turn, some warm eve finds me at my saints-- 
A laugh, a cry, the business of the world-- 
(Flower o' the peach 
Death for us all, and his own life for each!) 
And my whole soul revolves, the cup runs over,

And I do these wild things in sheer despite, 
And play the fooleries you catch ...Read More

..., when you're cleaning out the stall, 
A-leaning on the railings nearly dead, 
And you reckon by the evening they'll be pretty sure to fall; 
And you curse them as you tumble into bed. 
Oh, you'll hear it pretty soon, "Pass the word for Denny Moon, 
There's a horse here throwing handsprings like a clown;" 
And it's shove the others back, or he'll cripple half the pack;

...of us have.

If people say they've got feelings, you may be pretty sure they haven't got them.
So if you want either of us to feel anything at all
You'd better abandon all ideas of feelings altogether....Read More
