    1. I’m sorry about that. I was torn about how to make it more clear and opted to leave it plain initially. I’ve since italicized the words that begin new stanzas to help it be more easily understood. It might also help to know that each new stanza starts with a being, one divine, two human, and one symbolic. Each stanza then portrays something about the erosion of sexual purity from ideal to trafficking.
