Sonnet 536

I brusquely thrust my words into her mind
Lancing her thoughts as yet again, again,
That there her pleasured soul in wanton kind
Might cede her doubt and to my heart remain.
Dubiety poured forth along that keen,
Long filled by staid convention of the past;
Rapier lines that prudery would so deem
Licentious, lewd, lubricious, even crass.
But soft she did embrace the libertine,
And dewey-eyed she seeming understood
The discourse there that flirted nigh obscene
And so debauched, did intimate she would;
That conversation carried on past dawn
‘Til silence blessed the stains we laid upon.
