the whim in her lucid air is the epicene scrap of the gent limner,
with which he must have intimacy
if he is to bring into being a new pearl
she is the innermost to his outermost, the yin to his yang,
except that, in a reversal of effete roles,
she penetrates or inspires him
and he gestates to bring forth,
from the fallopian of the mind.
