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 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.
