A Cloistered Life

A man of minus­cule talent but much rea­ding
his were never shy loves or roman­tic year­nings.

Other than with him­self he has to pay for sex, keeps
a parade of sneers above his grub­by trou­ser secrets.

Said by apo­lo­gists not to tole­rate fools glad­ly, aloof,
his eve­ry caus­tic aside is but a boo­kish quote.

Concerned less with ideals than with ear­nings
he has pro­du­ced works alle­ged­ly meta­phy­si­cal.

Not so : a bubble puf­fed out by lear­ning he is yet
just ano­ther intel­lec­tual frigh­te­ned of the sim­ply said.

His were never shy loves or roman­tic year­nings.
