Sonnet (extract): Al Dente

          Alas! Thou art gone, my loyal, incisive friend,
          wrenched from thy bed like a boulder from the earth;
          thy mordant strength that succoured me from birth:
          I mourn thy loss, thy violent, bloody end.

          No fairy crown atones for thy decease.
          Thy life's work done, now may thou rest in peace.
