Smelling Salts

Everyone is being called
out into their lives, those lives lying
about like Victorian women
suffering from neurasthenia

and learning through their suffering
that they are the shapers of those lives
for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer.
All parts of the self wedded, they take the field.
