Muriel Rukeyser

something about desire
something about murder
something about my death
something about madness

something about light
something of breaking open
sing me to sleep and morning
my dreams are all a waking

— Muriel Rukeyser, from “Breaking Open,” The Collected Poems. (University of Pittsburgh Press; 1 edition May 10, 2006)
