Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and dont talk
—Susan Griffin (b. 1943)
“through the Sumner Tunnel,
trunk by trunk through its sulphurous walls,
tile by tile like a mens urinal,
like somebody elses package.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
