Julia Origo poetry: Suicide

 

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?

 

Julia Origo

Verona 1965 – London 2005

(From: Bad girl, 1985)
