    Consolation

    How agreeable it is not to be touring Italy this summer,
    wandering her cities and ascending her torrid hilltowns.
    How much better to cruise these local, familiar streets,
    fully grasping the meaning of every roadsign and billboard
    and all the sudden hand gestures of my compatriots.

    There are no abbeys here, no crumbling frescoes or famous
    domes and there is no need to memorize a succession
    of kings or tour the dripping corners of a dungeon.
    No need to stand around a sarcophagus, see Napoleon's
    little bed on Elba, or view the bones of a saint under glass.

    How much better to command the simple precinct of home
    than be dwarfed by pillar, arch, and basilica.
    Why hide my head in phrase books and wrinkled maps?
    Why feed scenery into a hungry, one-eyes camera
    eager to eat the world one monument at a time?

    Instead of slouching in a café ignorant of the word for ice,
    I will head down to the coffee shop and the waitress
    known as Dot. I will slide into the flow of the morning
    paper, all language barriers down,
    rivers of idiom running freely, eggs over easy on the way.

    And after breakfast, I will not have to find someone
    willing to photograph me with my arm around the owner.
    I will not puzzle over the bill or record in a journal
    what I had to eat and how the sun came in the window.
    It is enough to climb back into the car

    as if it were the great car of English itself
    and sounding my loud vernacular horn, speed off
    down a road that will never lead to Rome, not even Bologna. read more »

    On Being A Woman

    Why is it, when I am in Rome,
    I'd give an eye to be at home,
    But when on native earth I be,
    My soul is sick for Italy? read more »
