A Song for Muriel

Written by: Carolyn Kizer | Biography
 No-one explains me because
There is nothing to explain.
It's all right here Very clear.
O for my reputations sake To be difficult and opaque! No-one explains me because Though myopic, I see plain.
I just put it down With a leer and a frown.
.
.
Why does it make you sweat? Is this the thanks I get? No-one explains me because There are tears in my bawdy song.
Once I am dead Something will be said.
How nice I won't be here To see how they get it wrong.
