I know the bottom, she says. I know it with my great tap root:
It is what you fear.
I do not fear it: I have been there.

Is it the sea you hear in me,
Its dissatisfactions?
Or the voice of nothing, that was your madness?

Happy birthday to Sylvia Plath

This land is a poem of ochre and burnt sand I could never write, unless paper were the sacrament of sky, and ink the broken line of wild horses staggering the horizon several miles away.

We made those 6 years count. Didn’t we, pumpkin girl?

We ran through the leaves.
We ate the desserts.
We made all the music.
We glittered the pictures.
We costumed in ALL the fanciness.

We ran through the leaves and lifted our hands to glory.
