Prose version of From a Survivor
By Adrienne Rich

The agreement we forged was the usual contract of male and female humans in
past times. I ignore the conception we had of our existence: that our
collection of emotional and behavioral traits could fight against the
deficiencies of humankind. Fortunate or misfortunate, we didnít recognize
that humankind had deficiencies of that sort, and that we were going to
share them. Parallel to every other person, we considered us as unique.
Your physical whole is as lucid to me as it always was: quite greater
because my sensation towards it is defined: I cognize what it may possibly
make, it is no longer the physical whole of a divine being or something
that possesses authority over my existence. The following time in which
the planet completes a revolution around the sun it would have been 20
years and you are inefficiently lifeless. Who may have executed the jump we
discussed, after the proper time, of enacting, which I dwell presently not
as a jump, but as a progression of concise, marvelous motions, each one
forging the following.

Stark, mournful....clear. Beautifully executed, simple and concise.
