Plathisms (Plathian moments)

a dog picked up your doggy husband. he moved on.

viciousness in the kitchen! the potatoes hiss.

I turn and I burn.
Do not think I underestimate your great concern.

I am the baby in the barn.

infinitely pure and infinitely expensive.

if he were I, he would do what I did.

O jewel, O valuable.

from a country far away as health.

I am thin as a chicken-neck, does nobody love me?

Will you marry it, marry it, marry it.


  1. O jewel, o valuable!!!

    April is DEFINITELY time to think about Plath.
