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"
