Transcript ■ £ / *utr 1*1 ( A c DEAR ERICA I have eaten your words tasted your innards replaced your Mother and become your breast have basted blanched and blended your fears aborted them through a straw before they reached your heart picked up the trappings of skin you shed and grafted it into my own wounds joined the daisy-chain of hands flying the Universe made a circle round to hold you together offered you my shoulder, breasts, navel for a cushion of distraction—sat up nights with you fed you paregoric grappled with your Jacobs and perspired the nightmares blotted your tears with my long red hair licked the mote from your eye slept with your muse (who's unfaithful to us all) examined the stains you left on the chairs in graduate school dusted the print of your symmetry made a key and picked your locks slid beneath your surface grown with strawberry flesh sprouts crisp lettuce head and gorged myself on wild milk I disperse you from the market Erica.. .Erica. .. I have placed the crown of your head under my chin and discovered that I loved butter and I have danced around Keat's urn with you grecian style . . - Patricia Looker Patricia Looker's poem Dear Erica recently won the New York Poetry Most Outstanding Contemporary Poem, and was subsequently read at the New York Poetry Forum.
