blunted this

your wife’s amusements

for incurables

the dark world

a new bad word

any homeward bound steamer

‘my fire of straw’

the irksome monotony

be measured

a sapphire with two diamonds

from off their backs

east of Suez

with sherry and bitters

that bitter, bitter cold

that nuzzling

raw meat after a wet night

hungry again

lit us gentle


caused by blister-flies

under the orange bashes

not the flesh of a clean man
