Have such a space to cross,

Such coldness, forgetfulness.”

“Dying
Is an art, like everything else.
I do it exceptionally well.”

Nightly it flaps out
Looking, with its hooks, for something to love.

That sleeps in me;
All day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.”

Sylvia Plath’s Elm.
