The Gallows

Allons au jugement une fleur à la boutonnière. (Cioran)

(‘Let us go to judgement with a flower in our buttonhole.’)

I like that. It reminds me of a little sequence of three couplets by Anthony Glavin, called Prisoners (from his Gallery collection).

Here's the first:


'Utopia' personified, waiting in the Tower
In silence, for 'the fulness of permanent laughter.'
