Variations On A Theme By Ray Carver
Just when he had given up thinking
he'd ever write another line of poetry,
she began brushing her hair.
And singing that Chopin Polonaise
he liked so much.
The one about George Sand, whose
real name was Amandine-Aurore-Lucile Dupin,
the Baroness Dudevant. "She repels me"
he'd said at first. But then he
changed his mind on Mallorca.
