To Sylvia Plath

Sleepwalking she prepared breakfast
For her still dreaming children, before
Breaking fast, to satisfy her appetite

No fire needed, she all-consuming flame
Bravely cowered on the kitchen floor
And slaked an antique thirst on vapor

Laying her dream-tormented head to rest
She took premature or belated leave, set
Out to sea, having found no harbor here.
