Anne Sexton- Her Kind–> Paraphrase
I have gone out, driven by madness, all alone, at night. With bad intentions I’ve had a good time, visiting many houses, drawn to multiple windows. I always feel it is a lonely deed but with many men and lots of hands, we all know a woman like that is not lady-like, but I have done that before.
I’ve secluded myself away from the normal city limits, and made a home for myself by filling it up goods. I’ve made dinner for the other outcasts that were forced to leave and thus they complain, I have accepted my leaving, and we’ve become fast friends. A woman like this no one understands, but I have become her.
I’ve travelled around a lot, and spread myself to different communities, I’ve been around a few times, and know my place well. I’ve been hurt both physically and emotionally, but still I am not afraid or embarrassed to die, I am that woman.
