Poetry Thursday

This week's theme for Poetry Thursday is unfinished conversations, all the things you would have said, should have said, but didn't. Since I'm feeling rather speechless myself this week, I give you this poem by Adrienne Rich. It's a little long but well worth the read.


Cartographies of Silence

The loneliness of the liar
living in the formal network of the lie


Such a powerful notion. I really liked those lines.

Adrienne Rich is one of my faves. I re-read Diving into the Wreck all the time.

I like her too, although her poems are a bit dense at times. The Dream of a Common Language is my favorite.
