The Woman who was 'Wednesday'

For all Christ's work this Venus is not quelled
But reddens at the mouth with blood of men,
Sucking between small teeth the sap o' the veins,
Dabbling with death her little tender lips---
A bitter beauty, poisonous-pearled mouth...
...Ah, fair love,
Fair fearful Venus made of deadly foam,
I shall escape you somehow with my death.

Algernon Charles Swinburne
