First Memory | Louise Glück, 1990

Louise Glück

Long ago, I was wounded. I lived
to revenge myself
against my father, not
for what he was--
for what I was: from the beginning of time,
in childhood, I thought
that pain meant
I was not loved.
It meant I loved.

Louise Glück, First Memory, 1990
from Ararat
