Word Wednesday

This is my favorite passage from Integrity by Adrienne Rich

Anger and tenderness; my selves.
And now I can believe they breathe in me
as angels, not polarities.
Anger and tenderness; the spider's genius
to spin and weave in the same action
from her own body, anywhere even from a broken web.
