Explanation for a)

See,
melted men feel
that rapid plunge when
the gravid pendulum
of old but unsnuffed love falls
to this coiled sump of useless
lust and other stuff where romance goes
to compost with the other ghosts. The best
detritus gives single kisses. The worst
in us is there: livid, worn longing,
fanned to favour the thronging lost.
You drank alone and liquored,
griefbound, you wound through crowds
and found these hands. These
few hours have won
me.
