Metaphors (after Sylvia Plath)

Metaphors (after Sylvia Plath)

A Poem by magic wall tree

this is a response to Sylvia Plath's poem Metaphors


|   The meat of the sandwich is significance


|   for Sylvia Plath, without pretense


|   “The older the more time is taken, or less.

|   'Slice up a tree and you'd have a start

|   Of this.' 'Sections … of a mind?' 'Well, that's part

|   Of this.' Held in one hand (or two)

|   'You'll need at least one story' (or a few).

|   Chapter II

|   A thread woven becomes a tapestry

|   Sometimes, with craft easy to see.

|   CLIMAX (sexual) creates additional,”


|   But, in analysis, are the progeny notable?
