Some outstanding lines from Sexton
« on: June 28, 2015, 02:57:37 PM »
I was forced backward.
I was forced forward.
I was passed hand to hand
Like a bowl of fruit.
"Each night I am nailed into place
and I forget who I am.
Daddy?
That’s another kind of prison.
It’s not the prince at all,
but my father
drunkenly bend over my bed,
circling the abyss like a shark,
my father thick upon me
like some sleeping jellyfish."

A daughter is speaking from her Electra complex.
