Venus In Atrium

cf. William de Leftwich Dodge, Venus in Atrium (edited) (ca. 1908)

The late afternoon sunlight is slanting through the window
Again, sketching the room in vague gestures of discontent
That roll off the mind, and then only seem to disappear.
What am I going to do now? And how am I going to sleep tonight?

–John Koethe, “Picture of Little Letters” (excerpt)
