Selection from: Sexton, Anne. “The Gold Key.” Transformations, Houghton Mifflin, 1971. Cited under CMSI’s “Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Poetry.”

“When language dies, out of carelessness, disuse, and absence of esteem, indifference or killed by fiat…all users and makers are accountable for its demise.”
