Anne Sexton, Cigarettes and Whiskey and Wild, Wild Women

(from a song) 

Perhaps I was born kneeling, 
born coughing on the long winter, 
born expecting the kiss of mercy, 
born with a passion for quickness
and yet, as things progressed, 
I learned early about the stockade
or taken out, the fume of the enema.
By two or three I learned not to kneel, 
not to expect, to plant my fires underground
where none but the dolls, perfect and awful, 
could be whispered to or laid down to die.

Now that I have written many words, 
and let out so many loves, for so many, 
and been altogether what I always was—
a woman of excess, of zeal and greed, 
I find the effort useless.
Do I not look in the mirror, 
these days, 
and see a drunken rat avert her eyes? 
Do I not feel the hunger so acutely
that I would rather die than look
into its face? 
I kneel once more, 
in case mercy should come
in the nick of time.

John Keats ‘Bright Star’

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art—
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors—
No—yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever—or else swoon to death.

e.e. cummings “Spring is Like a Perhaps Hand”

          III

Spring is like a perhaps hand 
(which comes carefully 
out of Nowhere)arranging 
a window,into which people look(while 
people stare
arranging and changing placing 
carefully there a strange 
thing and a known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps 
Hand in a window 
(carefully to 
and fro moving New and 
Old things,while 
people stare carefully 
moving a perhaps 
fraction of flower here placing 
an inch of air there)and

without breaking anything.
