Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Writing Prompt #100 “Anne Sexton”

Anne Sexton

I have some poetry readings here from Anne Sexton.

Here is a link where you can read some of her poems if you are unable to view/hear the videos.


Please note which poem you are using for inspiration. If you are looking for something shorter she has many wonderful thought-provoking quotes.

When you have written your poem(s), please TAG MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.
