Undervalue/Dark (after Sylvia Plath, “ELM: For Ruth Fainlight”)

I know the bottom . . .

It is what you fear.

I do not fear it: I have been there.

put your money where your mouth is

put your mouth where your money is

your money is.

your mouth is.

(I am terrified by this dark thing/

That sleeps in me)

& at this point I think life writing is the better solution.
