Becoming Me


The 21st century finds me,
staring down the electric range,
so not Plath-able,
even with miles of duct tape.
A garage full of boxes,
of unpacked books,
what would Sexton do with that?
No place to park after dark,
which leaves me, leaving me,
out in the open,
an empty husk,
no one the wiser,
to my undoing,
my coming undone
becoming me.

Plath always expected to be rescued, even from ending herself; Sexton robbed us of her possabilities: if they had explored eachother they might have endured. AB

Incongruous sentences that come together in the end. Love the art.
