Anne Michaels (cont'd)

Anne Michaels continues to write echoes of my life.
Below I've created poetic quotation cutout of her poem Sublimation.

"Your actions have taught me what it is to love -
that it's holding back, as well as holding.


It [was] ... you
who convinced me
that nothing can be unravelled to its core,
that truth is a field, a cage, a cloud of sound.


How else to reconcile you
with my family;
our knowledge of each other
an invisible hypotenuse"
