From A Woman Under the Surface:


Alicia Ostriker

Of one substance, of one

Matter, they have cruelly

Broken apart. They never will touch

Each other again. The shining

Lovelier and younger

Turns away, a pitiful girl.

She is completely naked

And it hurts. The larger

Motherly one, breathlessly luminous

Emerald, and blue, and white

Traveling mists, suffers

Birth and death, birth

and death, and the shock

Of internal heat killed by external cold.

They are dancing through that blackness.

They press as if

To come closer.
