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