Wow. To take something as small as an earthworm and contemplate it in the
way that she does is quite simply poetry. Is it true or untrue that if you
like a poem or a bulk of a poet's work that's not to say that you would or
would have liked them as a person, right? I just recently heard that
Sexton molested one of her children (correct me if I'm wrong). I got a
little weirded out when I heard this b/c I didn't project that onto the
poems I've read of hers. Sure, they're sensual but let's keep that within
boundaries. Clearly she has a talent for creating dark and interesting
images with so much depth. She makes me see and think. It's too bad she
suffered the way that she did.
