Famous quotes containing the word sexton:

    bodies wrapped in elastic bands,
    bodies cased in wood or used like telephones,
    bodies crucified up onto their crutches,
    bodies wearing rubber bags between their legs,
    bodies vomiting up their juice like detergent,
    bodies smooth and bare as darning eggs.
    —Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Some women marry houses.
    It’s another kind of skin; it has a heart,
    a mouth, a liver and bowel movements.
    —Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Why do you smile that liverish smile?
    Why do you double over in a spaz and a swoon,
    gurgling on my past, my grief, my bile?
    Am I a joke?
    Am I a gas?
    —Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
