My most Favourite poem ever.
I remember having to do a poetry anthology on a poet during my senior year of high school. I just fell in love with Adrienne Rich. I love this poem.
It’s how I am feeling today.
If you have taken this rubble for my past
raking though it for fragments you could sell
know that I long ago moved on
deeper into the heart of the matter
If you think you can grasp me, think again:
my story flows in more than one direction
a delta springing from the riverbed
with its five fingers spread
Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
