Sylvia's Plath poems

Still-born, they don't always die,
but dazzled, they can't forget a drug so sweet
that even children would look on and smile.

To thrust all that life under your tongue! --
that, all by itself, becomes a passion.
Death's a sad bone; bruised, you'd say,

and yet she waits for me, year and year,
to so delicately undo an old would,
to empty my breath from its bad prison.

Balanced there, suicides sometimes meet,
raging at the fruit, a pumped-up moon,
leaving the bread they mistook for a kiss,

leaving the page of a book carelessly open,
something unsaid, the phone off the hook
and the look, whatever it was, an infection.

February 3, 1964

δεν ξέρω την εν λόγω ποιήτρια (είμαι και λίγο άσχετη με την ποίηση :) ), το ποιηματάκι της είναι όμορφο όμως
υπέροχη η φώτο από τον πανέμορφο Πόρο!!
