Broad Appeal

For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.    – Virginia Woolf

Ah, Anonymous.
Thank you for Miss
-behavin’, and makin’ history.
Thank you for the mystery
of phrase unfazed by name.

Thank you for spilling
your words
and sharing
your most secret song.

Thank you for craving art so much,
so long, you didn’t care whose print
it bore, or whether your face
was known;
for carving out
some small bloom,
some room
of your
own.

    That’s an awesome quote and even better poem.

  2. Yes…sigh…you’ve captured these facets of Anonymous that shine. I wrote to the same one! It was neat to see how the same and different our approaches were. I love your poetic mind and heart, De.
