For My Lover, Returning To His Wife

Rating: 3.2
She is all there.
She was melted carefully down for you
and cast up from your childhood,
cast up from your one hundred favorite aggies.
She has always been there, my darling.
She is, in fact, exquisite.
Fireworks in the dull middle of February
and as real as a cast-iron pot.
Let's face it, I have been momentary.
vA luxury. A bright red sloop in the harbor.
My hair rising like smoke from the car window.

One can feel the intensity of her helpless anger through out the poem - chilling!

I first read this poem in, I think, the New Yorker and it has haunted me ever since. Stunning and even heart-breaking imagery that has, apparently, burrowed itself into some place deep in me. Brings me to tears every time I read it......
