Recall of
netskyIam

a table for two
 1
of years ago when
 2
I dined with Quentin
 3
Crisp. Our hostess
 4
lesbian Lee thought
 5
we made a seasoned pair.
 6
 
 
He was old and I was fair
 7
amazed to meet him
 8
who ages hence
 9
may consider sublimed.
 10
 
 
Lee placed me apposed to
 11
Quentin's "How do you do?"
 12
 
 
"I'd rather ask
 13
you. How did you do it?"
 14
 
 
Here was Crisp as soft as first rain
 15
"I did what I do to live."

dinner with quentin,
tete a tete -- our hostess
remarked us a "seasoned pair".

he was getting on,
and i was just getting in,
and amazed to meet anyone:
window dressing boy
with old man.
