Ripper

Come, girls, come, Want to keep off the chill? Wrap your head in cloth To hide the head-dust and sores. Hide the greying at the roots, And the rasp in your voice. Pretend you’re younger– Talk higher, dip your eyes And cross your legs like they’ve never been spread. Pretend you’re a young thing, Fresh […]

The Ocean is a Woman

The ocean is a woman. She is vast and she is changing, And she does not hide from us All her forms, all her shades, All her faces. But we see her stilled, at times, And we assume passiveness. We see calm waters And, in forgetting her power, We abuse our own. We fill her […]
