Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B11a
Susan  knows 
she  is  a  Siren -
and  that  at  a 
word  from  her, 
Emily  would 
forfeit  Righteousness -
Please  excuse 
the  grossness 

H B11b

of  this  Morning  
I  was  for  a 
moment  disarmed -
This  is  the 
World  that  opens 
and  shuts, like 
the  Eye  of  the 
Wax  Doll
