it's not discraceful....... do you even understand it or see if it has any true meaning so don't just discard it off like that...

Is there no filter on the comments that are posted here? I was unaware that poetry that deals with intense subject matter was so disgraceful as to merit an uneducated post. Disgrace is dismissing art.

I completely agree.

If you don't want to read it, stop reading it.

As simple as that.

Lisa, believe it or not, this is what the future of poetry sounds like.
Poems should be created by open-minded people and be addressed to open-minded people as well.
This is true art. Not puritanism.

this piece is beautiful in its truth, the pain felt by the poet is clearly translated to the reader- there is nothing disgraceful about its honesty.

brevity, is used far too often, but this piece is brave, not because of its content or intent but because the poet herself, faced the images, explored the hauntings and had the courage to draw them out one image at a time... giving us, her, naked.

it is an honor to read Anne Sexton's work.
