I Love You Sylvia!


'What a thrill - -
My thumb instead of an onion.
The top quite gone
Except for a sort of a hinge

Of skin,
A flap like a hat,
Dead white.
Then that red plush.'-Sylvia Plath




I tell my finger cut
To straighten those lips.
I am tired
Of sneers
On my body.

I disrupt the circulatory indulgence
By choking the natural ambition
Of the wound.

I smear the wound’s pride
Onto old photographs.

The past looks better
Through rose-colored-lenses.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
