Alicia Suskin Ostriker Quotes

May, and after a rainy spring
We walk streets gallant with rhododendrons.

The appropriation of the creativity-procreativity metaphor by women is a conscious challenge to traditional poetics and beyond that to traditional metaphysics, for the gynocentric vision is not that Logos condescends to incarnate itself, but that Flesh becomes Word.

and my friend Karen remembers
as a little girl
studying Hebrew she inquired

of her refugee tutor who stroked his beard
and said in Yiddish "if there is a god
or if there isn't a god

a Jew studies"-isn't that a good story
beloved, but the woman in me
says that the poet lies

the poet can afford to lie
