I think that I shall never know

Dorothy Parker was simply one of those rarities in modern poetry who could write and deliver choice poems to amaze and engage a reader. Her brilliant mind has left a brilliant legacy. Sleep well Dorothy Parker sleep well. And thank you.

This is one of my favorites, although anything by Dorothy Parker is worth the read! Her quick wit and sharp humor are always welcome.

A poem about the sad lament of a poetess let down by love and who wonders why she is different from others. A poem to end despondently by signifying hoe hard life can be for those who unable to conform to a so called society. A brilliant yet tragic poem drawn from Dorothy Parkers life.
