New Year’s Resolution (2012)

12 January 2012 at 21:23 (Miscellaneous/ Drawings)

I have done it again.
One year in every ten
I manage it-
…………………
And I am a smiling woman.
I am only thirty.
And like the cat I have nine times to die.
…………………
Herr God, Herr Lucifer
Beware
Beware.

Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And eat men like air.

(23-29 October 1962, “Lady Lazarus” Sylvia Plath)

There is a right way and a wrong way to make a New Year’s resolution. I choose none.
