Margaret Atwood–Marrying the Hangman

PoetryFoundation.org: Marrying the Hangman

I love Margaret Atwood’s writing–“The Handmaid’s Tale” gave me shivers, and so does the above poem, “Marrying the Hangman.” It’s a style that reminds me a bit of something a friend of mine, Bev, might write. Yes, she’s that good.

Link found on Rev. Deuteronomy Jeremy’s Church of the Wayward Philanderer.

I guess it makes some sense–I spent the first 6 years of my life in Delaware, the last two in Maryland, and the rest in New England.
