Embarkation of Cythera

Like jellied flowers
My inflated curves
Melt in the peaceful stagnance of the bath.
If I were to die
I would resist the final agony
With only a faint quiver
From my escaping thighs.

Evelyn Scott [from Precipitations, 1920]

L' embarquement pour Cythere, Antoine Watteau (1717)
