Today's poem is by Kate Greenstreet
from Great Women of Science
Many things about the story are puzzling.
The women cooking, the men
swimming in the sea.
I believe we need light
inside the body.
Her necklace is
See the sparkle lines?
Wood into gold, "this diamond, this
poetry I speak of"'
I always wished I had a different voice.
Do you remember playing "having a baby" on your porch?
as the groaning, screaming woman.
And as the nurse
who brought the doll. It gets more like this.
