On Killing an Insect:

How happy we are when restored
when usually against hope the bad news
sustains a certain relentlessness
becoming a suspicious spot;
a hole here or there;
and then there is that constant cough

even in summer, never too far off.

But both Torturer and Inquisitor have a trick up their sleeves:
for a price, anything is possible,
like this card neatly folded lengthwise and
signed as an empty promise in game of Monty

Oblivious to Oblivion, ours and others,
we marks often overlook the art of suffering
