Award-winning poet Sophie Cabot Black has some verse featured in an upcoming issue of The New Yorker, but her subject matter isn’t love, grief or epiphany. Instead, she takes an odd turn toward private equity. Her conclusion:
Used. To draw out more than what is put in.
Everyone wants beyond; even with the one last page
As exit plan it is the return that is watched and how
We will be known. To end up where we start
Again, and to look as if we gained.
