“A new idea is rarely born like Venus attended by the graces
More commonly it’s modeled of baling wire and acne.
More commonly it wheezes and tips over.”

– Marge Piercy, from “Rough Times”

The Moon is Always Female

” …
when I work I am pure as an angel
tiger and clear is my eye and hot
my brain and silent all the whining
grunting piglets of the appetites.”

– Marge Piercy, from “The Moon is Always Female”

“Attention is love, what we must give
children, mothers, fathers, pets,
our friends, the news, the woes of others.
What we want to change we curse and then
pick up a tool. Bless whatever you can
with eyes and hands and tongue. If you
can’t bless it, get ready to make it new.”
– Marge Piercy, from “The art of blessing the day”
