“Bitch.” A Poem.
Posted by Richard Conniff on November 27, 2015
Just belatedly read this in The New Yorker. It’s by Craig Raine, and so good I thought it worth sharing here. Hilarious to see idiots on Twitter denouncing Raine as a misogynist. It’s a poem about a dog. Yes. That kind of bitch.
This Weimaraner in spandex,
tight on the deep chest,
webbed at the tiny waist.
The drips and drabs of her dugs:
ten, a tapering wedge,
narrowed toward the back legs.
Wish I could show you the whole poem here, but click on over to The New Yorker and take the time to enjoy it there.
