Julia Origo poetry: Suicide




in a flash


by misfortune and eager,

all the worst losses and woes of life,

examine her regrets,


just an attempt at genuine connection

(winters and summers)

at times, struggling to hear,

she leans forward,

face creasing with concentration,

eyes searching.


How Did It Come To This?
