In a Station of the Metro
by Ezra Pound
The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.

agreed- see Amy Hempel
She would always sleep with her husband and with another man in the course of the same day, and then the rest of the day, for whatever was left to her of that day, she would exploit by incanting, “French film, French film.”
Housewife is one of my faves. I LOVE Hempel. Have you read all of her work?
That is a brilliant bit by Pound…
Never heard of Hempel… Enquiring mind will find out. Thanks for the educational lead from the two of you.
