Cinderella

Rating: 3.4

You always read about it:
the plumber with the twelve children
who wins the Irish Sweepstakes.
From toilets to riches.
That story.

Or the nursemaid,
some luscious sweet from Denmark
who captures the oldest son's heart.
from diapers to Dior.

That story.

Narrating a fairy tale that had come through generations, in poetry form can not be that much like peanut eating. However, Anne has done it marvellously. She deserves very well the positioning. Congratulations. Thanks for sharing. X

An exciting poem about Cinderella, as only the poetess Anne Sexton can write that. She was suffering from bipolar disorder. A heavy disorder that led to her committing suicide. A brilliant take upon Cinderella. Most deserving as The Modern Poem Of The Day.

Why did she cut her toe off to date a prince? That's greedy and emo.
