The first three lines of one of his poems:

Do not reproach me! For reproach is temptation— And cure me with that which is my ailment (wine).
It (the wine) is yellow, and knows no sorrow— If a rock were to drink it, it would fly with joy.
It is poured by a creature with a vagina, but wearing the clothes of he who possesses a penis (a young woman dressed in men's clothes)— She has two lovers: a sodomite and a fornicator.

To be completed.
