My husband and I were supposed to go to the opera tonight, to see Orfeo ed Euridice. However, family stuff came up, and we missed it. Alas.
In honor of that, here’s a fragment from my poem “In Earnest.”
How I tax my lover, as if
to tread the velvet path of desperate night
were not to dread temptation,
as if to lead me home were simple.
