Nesting in Dialogs (11th sonnet)

A T.S. Elliot poem transcribed by Courtney Jensen and Andrew Mikkelson in 1998...



Chickens dearest dwell in hens,
While the perpetual hen's opportunity
Is adjustment of: Children's books.
Like the nurse to teach a patient,
The school Children study
The great wandering egg
half only; spit once.
Children turn
And the people spread their wings
And the Children turn
And all to the benign tenacity
Of the center shunned from sin.
All education through sexual benevolence
And a virgin lurking in the distance, the time, and spent.
