“call me rough, ill-tempered, slovenly— i tell you, 
every tenderness i have ever known
has been nothing 
but thwarted violence, an ache 
so permanent and deep, the lightest touch 
awakens it…it is impossible
to care enough. i have returned 
with a second symphony 
and 15 piano variations
which i’ve named prometheus,
after the rogue titan, the half-a-god 
who knew the worst sin is to take 
what cannot be given back.
i smile and bow, and the world is loud.”
- rita dove
