Poetry: "To Sylvia Plath"

by Rob San Miguel

Oh dear Miss,
Inside the Jar,
How mislead you have been,
To think that the meat
Is the head bobbing on your neck
When it was the rising yellow fowl
That gave you the hymen,
The cardigan
And the dead sheepskin you call your sweater,
They are all part of the blindness
We see through spheres open shut,
You should have retreated the cabbage out from the range,
You will
Take a sordid space
In a parchment laced with semen,
These dancing letters
That stomped
And raped
Our hole,
There is no escape but the
Earsplitting silence we must broach,
There is no escape
But to kiss the evil
And un-violate her flesh,
See her in the stillest of water
Turn her inside out,
You will discover
The conceit,
Staring us in the cupboard,

Brun Philippines encourages readers to focus solely on the issues when commenting or criticizing. We do not allow foul language and personal attacks on any individuals. You may only comment on a public person’s beliefs and actions. We strictly screen people who will leave comments, and only comments from readers with full names will be posted. Freedom of speech also includes responsibility. We want to weed out the buffoons from the critical and freethinkers. Thanks so much.

(Hinihikayat ng “Teapot” (Tsarera) ang mga mambabasa na tumutok lamang sa mga isyung pinag-uusapan sa pagkomento o pagpuna. Hindi namin pinapayagan ang napakaruming wika at personal na pag-atake sa sinumang indibidwal. Maari lamang punahin ang aksiyon at paniniwala ng isang publikong indibidwal. Istrikto naming sinasala ang mga taong nagkokomento at tanging ang mga komento mula sa mambabasa na ginagamit ang buong pangalan ang aming ipapaskil. Kaakibat din ng kalayaan sa pananalita ang responsibilidad. Gusto naming alisin ang mga luko-luko mula sa kritikal at malayang mag-isip. Maraming salamat po.)
