Another Weeping Woman
By Wallace Stevens
From “Sur Ma Guzzla Gracile”

POUR the unhappiness out
From your too bitter heart,
Which grieving will not sweeten.
Poison grows in this dark.
It is in the water of tears        5
Its black blooms rise.
The magnificent cause of being—
The imagination, the one reality
In this imagined world—
Leaves you        10
With him for whom no phantasy moves,
And you are pierced by a death.
