An unseen mistress,
    ignorant of love's misfortune.
Strategems of Love--Justice denied.
and Parker's cruel hands
belong to a man
of questionable taste--promises implied.

                      Passions strained
                      like dogs chained,
                      sonnets dropping clues.
                      Chinese water torture.
                      (Bet you kick puppies, too.)

Delusions of allusions
    dancing in charade.
I should have been content with Donne,
safely in his grave.

            Unseen eyes analyze--
            studies love like a bug
            rudely pinned...
            makes mental notes
            of puzzling quotes,
            love's voice, mere mimic, once again.

            I can not write falsely
            for purpose of misleading...
            so, "Welcome to the Forum!", luv,
            I'm pleased to know you're reading.
            But every word,
               you should have heard
            for years, from my lips, pleading...

Last piece now.
See?  It fits.
I'm smiling at
the thought of it.

             In closing, yet another quote
             from Ms. Parker's wiry hand.
             Eloquent, simple and direct,
             so even you can understand:

             " I do not give a damn."

I believe I detect a healthy dose of
"wrath" in this one.
Very, very nice to read such powerful words.
