All I ask of a woman is that she shall feel gently towards
me
when my heart feels kindly towards her,
and there shall be the soft, soft tremor as of unheard bells
between us.
It is all I ask.
I am so tired of violent women lashing out and insisting
on being loved, when there is no love in them
.

Snakes are lovely creatures; read D. H. Lawrence (who was wonderful on animals and death even though he knew nothing whatever about sex or women).  If there is a curse, I think it is our species prejudices.

All snakes do -- on the sly.  But does it relieve them of the curse?

When snakes slough,
they have to back into nook or cranny
to lodge the slough,
before they can pull out of it.

lingering in the chambers of the sea
without ever graduating to any thought
like a pair of ragged claws
 
as if merely to breathe were life

Trying to hang on to life is like
trying to stay forever in Gr. 12, no graduation.
