“Oh, allora
mi alzai con la pelle d’oro,
e mi disfeci dei salmi
mi disfeci dei vestiti
e tu sciogliesti le briglie
sciogliesti le redini,
ed io i bottoni,
e disfeci le ossa, le confusioni,
le cartoline del New England,
le notti di gennaio finite alle dieci,
e come spighe ci sollevammo,
per acri e acri d’oro,
e poi mietemmo, mietemmo,
mietemmo.” — Anne Sexton, Noi
