The poetess opens

like a book

bound in silk

with florets in the margins

and gold-edged pages turning

.

and turning

with every breath

of the Muse

reading over

her shoulder.

(from 1979)

She paints what is reflected

in tears that are neglected

and laughs at the picture

that she sees.

Still her thoughts become infected

with words that were rejected

and she knows that craziness

comes in degrees.

But the world will stand corrected

when her bones are resurrected

and she asks,

“How did you like my last strip-tease?”
