Anne Sexton - An Obsessive Combination Of Onotological Inscape, Trickery And Love

Busy, with an idea for a code, I write
signals hurrying from left to right,
or right to left, by obscure routes,
for my own reasons; taking a word like writes
down tiers of tries until its secret rites
make sense; or until, suddenly, RATS
can amazingly and funnily become STAR
and right to left that small star
is mine, for my own liking, to stare
its five lucky pins inside out, to store
forever kindly, as if it were a star
I touched and a miracle I really wrote.

I know I’m rep

I know I’m replying to a year old comment, but I wanted to say this just in case any other Linux users pop on. Download and run Windows in a virtual machine. I still had my XP disc from my first computer, so I installed it on Virtual Box (there is also VMWare and a few others). It runs while yo2#&8u17;re still in linux so you don’t have to dual boot and allocate space to Windows. You still need to have the actual Windows program though, but it’s great if you just want to pop on it and print some coupons.
