A Fair Lady (The Immaculate)


A FAIR LADY
“The Immaculate”

She lies on the bed
With her lap-top
She watches her favorite TV-show
It has 32 seasons
She thinks the characters are realistic
Credible
It’s an intelligent show
And she would like you to know
In fact
She thinks of herself
As someone who is very good at finding
The few
Authentic
Intelligent
Shows
Authe ntic
Subtle
These are two of her favorite
Adjectives

Her friends are authentic
Intelligent
And she is
Not
Wasting her time
It’s nice
Turning 28
And have such
Consistent opinions
On various matters
Soon she will get her
Master’s degree

She is accurate in her use of
Terms and concepts
Not sloppy and over-excited
She keeps little notes
On various topics

One shouldn’t just reproduce
It’s not always
Ethical
She knows a lot about ethics
Kant
Stuart Mill
Etc.

She can pick the right clothes
Even when the lights are off
She knows her wardrobe well
All the drawers
All her interior
And she knows her stomach well
Her appetite
It’s delicate
Like the rest of her
Maybe even
Subtle
Hahaha!

She doesn’t give
Blowjobs
After intellectual
Defeat
Happens rarely, though

She hates when people are
Too kind
She prefers a neutral
Debate forum
Too much kindness makes people
Sloppy
Receptive to hollow talk
Which can be
Contagious
And more importantly
Unethical
Dullness is the price of
Authenticity
Ethicality
Intelligence< br>She believes

Her body rejects
Milk
After midnight
And
Sperms
At all hours


Ave, ave! Mulier!
Plena gratia!
Plena nullo!
Plena nemine!

Benedicta est elegantia tua!
Et vocabitur elegantia altissima!
Benedicta est umbra alba frigida tua!

Soror tua, ea nutrix senex
Te salutat
Ex litore cinereo
Maribus eius, sacerdos mutus
Stat ante templum torrentum
vagiens

Ea manús suas lavat
In aqua infecunda
Ridet
Laudans silentium Dei

Ave, ave!
Filiae meae!

“Your sister, the old nurse
Salutes you from the grey shores

Her husband, the mute priest
Stands at the burning temple
Lamenting

She washes her hands in sterile waters
She cuts a sly smile
Praising God’s silence

Blessed be your paths!
My daughters”

    A note: My literature teachers in college were influenced by the British and American critics called the NEW CRITICS. They advocated an impersonal approach to literary criticism, for example, you NEVER assume the voice in a poem is the poet's voice, and so you refer to that first person figure as the speaker. It prevents wrongful identification. And for this poem I wouldn't want to misconstrue the central figure.) Could we conclude there is a love-hate relationship between the speaker and the subject, perhaps like Catullus's I LOVE, I HATE or is that too extreme? The speaker is very pointed in his negative reactions, It's almost as if he feels the woman should be aware of her personality quirks, and he is bothered that she is completely oblivious. She comes across as someone who is devastatingly intelligent and admirable in some things, and in others - let's just she disappoints the speaker and he is pained by these lapses in her personality. My favorite section of your poem is the Latin closing passage - that's what made think of Catullus. I've added this poem and WATERS to my Poetry Collection! ! Both merit re-readings to bring me closer to the poems' undercurrents of meaning. (Report) Reply
