every woman's blues

:  u l r i k e   g e r b i g



Read a poem by Silvia Plath
as you get ready for shopping

Listen to Billy Holiday
as you do other people's dishes

Read a poem by Ann Sexton
as you put clean sheets on the bed

no use crying over
spilled milk
or drops of semen
for that matter

read and listen, baby
and be glad
to have crossed
the 40-something line
without
drowning in drink
or putting your head
in the oven.
