i wrote a thing

Today I read a piece about Sylvia Plath (today is her birthday) and went down the rabbit hole of the Plath/Hughes relationship. Reread some of their work and felt like writing a thing, which hasn’t happened in many years.

moon land

21 to 17, they dwindle
half mysteries
in amber ooze

again the shining stick
my heart with it
and there are two

a blaze, a spark
they drop onto
the viscous sand, moon
land

again the shining stick
my heart with it
the number holds

the fragile core
is riddled through
not meant for you

again the shining stick
my heart with it
ravaged badlands

it’s shaken loose
once was aloof
now all I am
