Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

CXXV


TO hang our head ostensibly,
  And subsequent to find
That such was not the posture
  Of our immortal mind,
  
Affords the sly presumption        5
  That, in so dense a fuzz,
You, too, take cobweb attitudes
  Upon a plane of gauze!
