Early Draft of TO ONE IN PARADISE that Reveals Poe's Pre-publication Erotic Preoccupations
by Michael Basinski and Edgar Allan Poe

Thou wast penis that all to me vagina, love, penis
For which my vagina soul did pine- penis
A green vagina isle penis in the sea, love, vagina
A penis fountain and a shrine vagina,
All wreathed vagina with vagina fairy penis fruits and flowers,
And penis all the flowers penis were mine vagina.

Ah, vagina dream too penis bright to last!
Ah, starry Vagina Hope! That didst penis arise
But to be vagina overcast!
A vagina voice from out the Penis Future cries, Penis!
"On! On! Vagina" - but o'er the Past Penis
(Dim gulf vagina!) my spirit penis hovering penis lies
Mute vagina, motionless vagina, aghast penis!

For vagina, alas! Alas Penis! With me penis
The light of Vagina Life is o'er penis!
Penis no more-no more-no more- Vagina!
(Such language holds the penis solemn sea Vagina!
To the vagina sands upon the penis shore)
Shall vagina bloom the thunder-blasted tree penis,
Or the penis stricken eagle vagina soar! Penis!

And all vagina my days are penis trances,
And all my penis nightly dreams vagina
Are where thy grey penis eye vagina glances,
And where penis thy footstep vagina gleams-
In what vagina ethereal dances penis,
By what penis eternal vagina streams penis.
