Poem of the Day: Jean Valentine

 

YOU DREW MY HEAD

 

You drew my head
the back of my head
my neck stem

you made my head a charcoal skull
and even the skull
is turned away

no eyes

 

—from Jean Valentine’s Door in the Mountain: New and Collection Poems, 1965 – 2003, Wesleyan University Press (2004)
