  • Hera Explains Her Indiscretion
  • Mary Catherine Loving (bio)

I search your pockets for suggestions of the other life you live. Not unlike Psyche, I traipse about my circumference, harvest bits and paltry pieces; use them

in a peculiar sacrament: I collect loose ends—

will them into a semblance. Intimate. Cold. [End Page 93]

Mary Catherine Loving

Mary Catherine Loving “As a youngster, I was taught not to eat certain foods or certain food combinations. My family did not eat an animal’s internal organs, nor did we consume milk and meat together, and the term meat was extended to include fish. My father would no more serve us fish sticks and milk for lunch than he would pork or catfish at dinner. The former was simply not done, and as for pork and catfish—both were scavengers: unclean, and in my family, not intended for consumption. In adulthood, I learned that others shared many of my somewhat unusual eating habits.”
