Anne Sexton quotes

for it is dark,
as dark as the leathery dead
the cement wall
of the clumsy calendar
I live in,
my life,
and its hauled up
this is no dream
just my oily life
Mother frowned at my wasted life.
My father smoked cigars.
But you you go ahead,
go on, go on back down
Also, I am tired of all the dead.
They refuse to listen,
Watch out for love
(unless it is true,
... to break crystal glasses
in celebration,
is a bird full of mud,
I say aloud.
And death looks on with a casual eye
and scratches his anus.
I have a black look I do not
like. It is a mask I try on.
