I'm the ugly child I was

Once again in the mirror, abashed, dismayed
See the trick Time, sudden, has played!
Now, as then, sore loved because
I'm the ugly child I was

All Surface is my Narcissus tomb
& Cain my Abel's nom de plume
Such Unanimity must Acquittal win
From, to, Sorrows' Sanhedrin

Saqi! Let Gemini breed in Liriope's womb
Wine to blooden, Christ to doom
So Love get drunk on Plato's Laws
I'm the ugly child I was.
