Sylvia Plath – You’re

Clownlike, happiest on your hands, Feet to the stars, and moon-skulled, Gilled like a fish. A common-sense Thumbs-down on the dodo’s mode. Wrapped up in yourself like a spool, Trawling your dark as owls do. Mute as a turnip from the Fourth Of July to All Fools’ Day, O high-riser, my little loaf.

Wounds – Poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko

I have been wounded so often and so painfully, dragging my way home at the merest crawl, impaled not only by malicious tongues- one can be wounded even by a petal. And I myself have wounded-quite unwittingly- with casual tenderness while passing by, and later someone felt the pain, it was like walking barefoot over…… Continue reading Wounds – Poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko
