Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 12. August 20, 1947



"I will not transgress," I said last night.
We parted in pain. Any reeling was
Found by the moon. An agonised flight
Of moth into flame with grotesque twist.

Today I am quiet. Only the scurry
Of rats into rooms, the creaking of stairs
And whirring of birds, heighten the flurry
Of tremulous hands that hunger for you.
