    What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?
    The world would split open
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    What are you now? If we could touch one another,
    if these our separate entities could come to grips,
    clenched like a Chinese puzzle . . . yesterday
    I stood in a crowded street that was live with people,
    and no one spoke a word, and the morning shone.
    Everyone silent, moving. . . . Take my hand. Speak to me.
    —Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)
