I thought it was beautiful, she expresess her innermost desires and
longing.Now that her huband has left her for another woman she feels she
has a void, and in-short tries to fill that void and pleasure herself
because like many men((andrew)), her man couldn't quite get the job
done.Therefore he felt inadequete and left her for a woman easier to
please. Some men can't handle an over bearing outspoken woman.

I agree with Andrew. And by the way, Anne Sexton had incestuous contact
with her daughter and ended up killing herself. So he was right, she was a
crazy bitch. I think that you people are the narrow-minded, ignorant ones.
