The poem Feeding involves a cup.


When out of the blue the child asked what the difference was between homicide and suicide, she cried, “You’re spilling!”—and that he please hold his cup upright. When he asked if suicide were more common than homicide—or if homicide was more common between the two—she said, “You’re getting all wet!—please hold your cup upright, or if the next time you’re thirsty how about I don’t feed you?”
