About This Title

"Clifton mythologizes herself: that is, she illuminates her surroundings and history from within in a way that casts light on much beyond." —Marilyn Hacker, The Women's Review of Books


eve's version

smooth talker
slides into my dreams
and fills them with apple
apple snug as my breast
in the palm of my hand
apple sleek apple sweet
and bright in my mouth

it is your own lush self
you hunger for
he whispers    lucifer
honey-tongue.
