Famous quotes containing the word martha:
“Youve strung your breasts
with a rattling rope of pearls,
tied a jangling belt
around those deadly hips
and clinking jewelled anklets
on both your feet.
if you run off to your lover like this,
banging all these drums,
do you shudder with all this fear
and look up, down;
in every direction?”
