(From the Antique) It's a weary life, it is, she said...
Doubly blank in a woman's lot
1 of 12
(From the Antique) I wish and I wish...
I were a man
2 of 12
(From the Antique) Not a body and not a soul:
Not so much a grain of dust
3 of 12
(From the Antique) Simon Avery: "Annihilation is preferable since..
this would enable escape from gender expectations and imposed identities
4 of 12
(When I am dead) I shall not see the shadows
I shall not feel the rain
5 of 12
(When I am Dead) The twilight..
That doth not rise nor set
6 of 12
(Uphill) Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?
They Will not keep you standing at the door
7 of 12
(Uphill) Will there be beds for me and all who seek?
Yea, beds for all who come
8 of 12
(Uphill) Does the road wind up-hill all the way?
Yes, to the very end
9 of 12
(Remember) Better by far you should forget and smile...
Than that you should remember and be sad.
10 of 12
(Winter My Secret) You want to hear it? Well:
Only my secret's mine and I cannot tell
11 of 12
(Winter My secret) Nipping and clipping through my wraps and all...
I wear my mask for warmth
12 of 12
