Gail White -- Tailgaters

Shakespeare --
Where the bee sucks, there suck I.
I'm not a very macho guy.

Millay --
Euclid alone has looked on Beauty bare.
For Plato, she put on clean underwear.

Yeats --
When you are old and gray and full of sleep,
Your kids will board you out -- and do it cheap.

I walk through the long school room questioning;
And no one knows a single bloody thing.

I saw a staring virgin stand
And murmur, "Please remove your hand."

A sudden blow: The great wings beating still.
The hunter adds a buzzard to his kill.

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree.
I can't afford the places where there's anything to see.
