Keats #2

(More) Negative Capability

My imagination is a monastery and I am its monk.
—Keats

My face is a mirror
And I am its gaze

My finger is a prick
And I am its tip

My lust is a mistress
And I am its boob

My rear is a bum
And I am its couch

My beard is a garden
And I am its gnome

My faith is a habit
And I am its nun

My fear is a mountain
And I am its cliff

My will is a fortune
And I am its heir

My ego is a lion
And I am its pride

My voice is a note
And I am its tone

My wit is a parent
And I am its kid

My life is a ripple
And I am its wake

Negative Capability

Negative Capability

My imagination is a monastery and I am its monk.
—Keats

My body is a hobby
and I am its pursuit.

My mouth is a pillow
and I am its drool.

My cock is a cave
and I am its rock.

My mind is a meadow
and I am its dew.

My heart is a snare
and I am its beat.

My tongue is a palette
and I am its brush.

My foot is a fetish
and I am its shoe.

My soul is a theory
and I am its proof.

My breath is a breeze
and I am its blow.

My nose is a sniffer
and I am its glue.

My eye is a flicker
and I am its screen.

My hand is a jack
and I am its load.

My life is a boar
and I am its grunt.
