motherly love

Alan Dugan の詩です。

     Drunken Memories Of Anne Sexton

The first and last time I met
my ex-lover Anne Sexton was at
a protest poetry reading against
some anti-constitutional war in Asia
when some academic son of a bitch,
to test her reputation as a drunk,
gave her a beer glass full of wine
after our reading. She drank
it all down while staring me
full in the face and then said
"I don't care what you think,
you know," as if I was
her ex-what, husband, lover,
what? And just as I
was just about to say I
loved her, I was, what,
was, interrupted by my beautiful enemy
Galway Kinnell, who said to her
"Just as I was told, your eyes,
you have one blue, one green"
and there they were, the two
beautiful poets, staring at
each others' beautiful eyes
as I drank the lees of her wine.


What's the difference between the love told in this poem and the motherly love?

アン・セクストンは凄い美人です。
Janis Joplin もインテリ学生だったのだと思いますし、歌も下手ではない、多々、容姿にはコンプレックスがあったように感じます。

アン・セクストンは、やはり酒びたりになるほどのコンプレックスにさいなまれていました。

Sandy Denny
とかこの手の女性とはあまりかかわりにならない方がいいですね。

some academic son of a bitch というのはいいえて妙ですが、Bill Clinton 同様、Rhodes Scholarship を受けた Chris Christopherson のことが頭をよぎります。

サンディ・デニーはBBCのインタヴュー、クリストファスンの方は、Rita Coolidge とのデュエットであります。
