Opening linePoem
I’m fond, nereids and nymphs,
After I learned to transubstantiate
I remember peeping in at his skyscraper room
I'd done it before
I sank like a stone
I'm not the first or the last
7 April 1852.
I’d loved them fervently since childhood.
It was late September.
Cold, I was, like snow, like ivory.
The bed we loved in was a spinning world
That’s him pushing the stone up the hill, the jerk.
Ice in the trees.
Teach me, he said
The Devil was one of the men at work,
Opening linePoem
Where I lived - Winter and hard earth.
A suspicion, a doubt, a jealousy
Ladies, for argument's sake,
First things first. I married Faust.
In the convent, y'all
Girls, I was dead and down
At childhood's end
All I know is this:
I had grieved.
I shrank myself
These myths going round, these legends, fairytales,
Firstly, his hands - a woman's.
There are the twins
At first, I looked along the road
By Christ, he could bore for Purgatory.
