A partiality.

The eponym of letters
Must not be confused with that which we use

For colors.

There for a duty to the Absolute goes the distinct strand

Of bruisy curses,

Blushing suggestions and a din of

Ochry suppressions.

It is reasonable to wonder,
"What's the difference? If each is so brilliant
And so eagerly infinite?"

There is in the former, too, a duty to earthly flowers--
Substantial in that it is how we know it.

But for the eagerness of the latter
It is a partiality,
Bereft of sex and wild complement.
