See Ostriker’s presentation of Lilith: “I am the woman with hair in a rainbow/Rag, body of iron/I take your laundry in, suckle your young/scrub your toilets/ … I am the one you confess/Sympathy for, you are doing a study/Of crime in my environment, of rats/in my apartment, of my/Sexual victimization, you’re raising money/To send my child to summer camp, you’d love/if I were not so sullen/And so mute” (“Lilith to Eve: House, Garden” in Feminist Revision and the Bible, pp. 92–93). See also “Lilith Unveils Herself”: “You feel me squeeze between you and the man/I hug your body, girl, I breathe/Have courage” (p. 96).
