Famous quotes containing the word sexton:

    I am filling the room
    with the words from my pen.
    Words leak out of it like a miscarriage.
    I am zinging words out into the air
    and they come back like squash balls.
    Yet there is silence.
    —Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Oh thumb,
    I want a drink
    it is dark,
    where are the big people,
    when will I get there...?
    —Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    And within the house
    ashes are being stuffed into my marriage,
    fury is lapping the walls,
    dishes crack on the shelves,
    a strangler needs my throat,
    the daughter has ceased to eat anything....
    —Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
