Here he comes again now, rearing 
his head 
into view—the owner 

of my pretty screwed-
up and back-
ward-looking face;

he who—not only 
seems to 
have willingly 

paid so bewildering-
ly handsomely 
for itbut also,

who has—
just that kind
of bland-

ly cavalier 
look in his eye—
of someone

who could—
rather effortlessly 
afford to.
