Wearing Hats

"I don't wear gratitude
well. Or hats.

What would I do with
veils and silly feathers
or a cloth rose
growing from the top of my head?

What should I do with this
peculiar furred emotion?"

Margaret Atwood, Letters, Towards and Away 6
in Margaret Atwood, The Circle Game, Anansi, Toronto 1978, p.83/84
