Wordy Wednesday (Some lines) ...

From one of my favorite poets:

I have gone out, a possessed witch,
haunting the black air, braver at night;
dreaming evil, I have done my hitch
over the plain houses, light by light:
lonely thing, twelve-fingered, out of mind.
A woman like that is not a woman, quite.
I have been her kind.

-Anne Sexton, "Her Kind"
