Look: this is January the worst onslaught --
Heart of cold. Bones of cold. Scalp of cold --
My mouth hovers across your breasts --
He slammed his hand across my face and I --
She is carrying my madness and I dread her --
Dear Adrienne: I'm calling you up tonight --
Dear Adrienne: I feel signified by pain --
I'm afraid of prison. Have been all these years. --
Tearing but not yet torn: this page --
Night over the great and the little worlds --
I came out of the hospital like a woman --
Violance as purification: the one idea --
Trapped in one idea, you can't have your feelings --
Lately in my dreams I hear long sentences --
You who think I find words for everything --
It's true, these last few years I've lived --
I have backroads I take to places --
The problem, unstated till now, is how --
If to feel is to be unreliable --
The tobacco fields lie fallow-the migrant pickers --
The cat-tails blaze in the corner-sunflowers --
In a bald skull sits our friend in a helmet --
You know the Government must have pushed them to settle --
Someone said to me: It's just that we don't --
Did anyone ever know who we were --
You: air-driven-reft-from the tuber-bitten soil --
The Tolstoyans: the Afro-American slaves --
This high summer we love will pour its light --
You who think I find words for everything.
Responsibility: Adrienne Rich.
