Hi, The 3rd last line is "though God" not "through God" :)

I can't get tired reading this wonderful poem. Now This poem is in my mind
like the waves on the beach
telling me there is something else again and again...
Bravo Anne Sexton

Sexton's short poems tend to much more bold in their statements. This
particular one caught my eye.

There is a typo here at the end. The last line should read, "though God in
his perversity" not "through". This makes a big difference as "through"
indicates that through God the male lover has untied the knot, which makes
a different point than what Sexton intended.
