Poetry inspired by Anne Sexton by Peter Hague

Midnight Squall
In Memory of Anne Sexton

Here at death’s doorway – 
gothic and brooding.
Depression is king – 
I can’t be happy with anything. 
Any burst of Sun.
I have checked my sextant
and I am rowing home. 
I have done my hitch! 
I have crossed my canvas – 
stitch by stitch.
