series inspired to the world and the poetry of Emily Dickinson. There is a Languor of the Life More imminent than Pain — 'Tis Pain's Successor — When the Soul Has suffered all it can — A Drowsiness — diffuses — A Dimness like a Fog Envelops Consciousness — As Mists — obliterate a Crag. The Surgeon — does not blanch — at pain His Habit — is severe — But tell him that it ceased to feel — The Creature lying there — And he will tell you — skill is late — A Mightier than He — Has ministered before Him — There's no Vitality.
