States of Poetry Series Three - ACT | 'Epicurus's Morals' by Miranda Lello

Adlubescence, n. Pleasure,
           1.    April day in Canberra, fog in the morning
                  lifts, sunshine, moon
                  waxes white and clear in the evening. E21.
           2.   Mutual resistance arising from
                  impenetrability, (Walter Charleton [1620–1707]).
           3.   I can scarcely refrain from kissing you.
