Supple confusions (Eliot)

                                             Think now
She gives when our attention is distracted
And what she gives, gives with such supple confusions
That the giving famishes the craving.  Gives too late
What's not believed in, or is still believed,
In memory only, reconsidered passion.  Gives too soon
Into weak hands, what's thought can be dispensed with...

T.S. Eliot, from "Gerontion"
