Odes by Olds

I thankfully saw Sharon Olds a few weeks ago in Seattle and she read her poetry that spoke so candidly of her body, relationships, and death. She graciously shared a few of her newly added “odes” with us: ode to hymen, breasts, condoms and certainly there are more. For now, a toast to breasts and hymens for bringing most women pain and joy and pain.
