YOUNG WOMAN PICKING the FRUIT of KNOWLEDGE/ 1892/
Thank you, Tess, at Magpie Tales....
Don't want to set the table for heroes,
paint china for your cup of tea.
Dare I clip my tresses to the bone,
live my life as the son?
I will taste the chaos in the flower,
climb a tree, pick the limbs
clean of desire.
Not permit myself
to be stifled by blame.
Cry with joy
to accept the last apple,
never give up
the celebrated bite.
