After Edna St. Vincent Millay
Ink on seven sheets of Chinese paper, total 36 x 110 inches
Excerpt from Conscientious Objector by Edna St. Vincent Millay
I shall die, but that is all that I shall do for death.
I hear him leading his horse out of the stall; I hear the clatter on the barn-floor.
He is in haste; he has business in Cuba, business in the Balkans, many calls to make this morning.
But I will not hold the bridle while he cinches the girth.
And he may mount by himself: I will not give him a leg up.
