The professor's daughter --
Keep the drama --
Cannot yet tell --
Phantom of the day --
Minor pleasure --

When die --
If breasts are weapons --
The pain from my throat --
Freud taught us to think --
Terror of heights --
The grids of the periodic table --

As much as his own --
Tasting the wind --
The censor and the checkbook.
