Anne Sexton Quote
“My mouth blooms like a cut.
I've been wronged all year, tedious
nights, nothing but rough elbows in them
and delicate boxes of Kleenex calling crybaby
crybaby, you fool!”
The Kiss - Love Poems (1969)
Letters to Dr. Y. - Words for Dr. Y (1978)
As quoted in: "The New York Times Book Review" (1985), p. 47

“In my lifetime, we've gone from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. We've gone from John F. Kennedy to Al Gore. If this is evolution, I believe that in twelve years, we'll be voting for plants.”
