Oscar Fingal O'Flaherty Wilde (Part II)
B. 10.16.1854 Dublin / D. 11.30.1900 Paris
Cerebral Meningitis

Promising, promising
so profligate with such implausible pledges—
as if they were figures of speech, merely
to be applied for purely decorative effect—
and just your eccentricity to slap—
a silly gift
like a stamp from old Ceylon—
a promise on the end of nearly every conversation.

My next entry about Oscar Wilde will be better—I swear.
