Charles Simic Quotes

    Eyes Fastened With Pins

    How much death works,
    No one knows what a long
    Day he puts in. The little
    Wife always alone
    Ironing death's laundry.
    The beautiful daughters
    Setting death's supper table.
    The neighbors playing
    Pinochle in the backyard
