Contents: Prologue : afternoon walk : the sea ranch --
Belongings --
In-and-out sun like the light of her mind that knows --
They gather where the light collects and falls --
But though she glows but though her smile blazes --
What should she do to safeguard her belongings? --
The curses learned in childhood have their uses --
Away from her belongings purse and keys --
What happens to belongings after the grave? --
Don't let my belongings go astray --
Yet O it's nice that all her things are pretty --
How far the age of mother father daughter! --
When did her mind begin to ravel away? --
At sundown tantrums shake the sunset west --
Sometimes the names of sundown visitors --
Back among her belongings her remains --
"Add finocchio seeds to your pasta sauce for that real Sicilian flavor!" --
She was --
"No thank you, I don't care for artichokes," --
Chocolate --
Hell is --
Remnant --
"It'll be reabsorbed," --
On the beach --
A little night music --
Night arrival in the tropics --
Night cry of the frogs --
Night cow --
Night punch, night --
Mathematicians asleep on the beach in Guadaloupe --
Rollerbladers in Paris --
"Seventeen" in the Marais --
April in --
St. Petersburg mosquitoes are really --
Peterhof --
Salome --
At Giverny, on canvas --
In my jazz --
Four masks --
First the fish that cling to your slithery --
Then bear snout, the rubbery freight --
Oh then bird-shape, sleek, aerobic --
At last a butterfly? --
Empire state --
Sunday morning and --
Skunk --
A sudden stink so vast it seems some demon's.
Responsibility: Sandra M. Gilbert.
