by Apple Dickinson

SO WHO hasn't envied Emily Dickinson?
She never had to deal with critics--
or fans--
No one Ever told her how evocative
of the feminist Mystique--
or whatever--
her poems were.
She is the creative Process
by commentary of a thousand
angry/happy Twits.
Graduate students never
plied her with
endless dissertations
or their Party games--
take a shot for every
reference to death--
her brother--
Repressed sexual longing--
manifested as
admiration of--
a flower--
So lucky.
