gi·tan

This is from a work titled "gitan" (2007)

  The nimble             city hermit             transmutes sex                   into art                   and finds             the nymphs obeying             the laws of chastity     Music-making angels             sing songs of the seminal                    seed             to the nicked and abraded     As our city servant                   keeps            his self-restraint…

    In this, our city           at the beginning of the world
