Julia Origo: Suicide & Witness

Julia Origo

(1965 –2005)

 

Suicide


Rage

in a flash

damaged

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?


(From: Escape, 1991)

 


witness


s t a g e o n e


I have seen many eagles

in recent years

so different

like a date without desteny

 

s t a g e t w o


and when you give up

-perhaps that’s the deal-

like all that died before

you get old

at any age

 

s t a g e t h r e e


then this misunderstanding

full of promise of modern fable

of a missing link

between age and mind

between losing home

and losing time

 

between you

and him


(London 1985)
