by Marianne Moore

Silence Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


While we could say that the cat-taking-mouse-as-prey imagery serves up some violence in the poem, let's be blunt here: Moore, as a poet, is really just not that into the sexy, sensational, or scandalous. And we're not so sure about Moore in actual life. The lady wore a cape and tricorn hat for kicks. Is that kinky or just weird? Well, that's up to you.
