Morose delectation: delectation morose, an internal sin, taking pleasure in sinful thoughts. (Aquinas in Summa Theologica)

His slim hand with a wave graced echo and fall.

His listeners held their cigarettes poised to hear, their smokes ascending in frail stalks that flowered with his speech. And let our crooked smokes. [‘…climb to their nostrils/from our blest altars – Cymbeline]
