Just Poetry (XVI) [R]*

For many are the pleasant forms which exist in

numerous sins,

and incontinencies,

and disgraceful passions

and fleeting pleasures,

which (men) embrace until they become


and go up to their resting place

And they will find me there,

and they will live

and they will not die again.
[Toni Morrison, introduction to Paradise]
