Dying Is An Art, Like Everything Else ...

Anyone who knows me well enough to have read my poetry knows of the high regard in which I hold Sylvia Plath.

Which is actually a rather painfully ironic title in light of Plath's death, as well as the recent passing of her son. A purposeful one? One hopes not.
