Syliva Plath was ratchet
these are 7 times she needed to xanax and chill
When she pretended to be a storm: "“I felt very still and empty, the way the eye of a tornado must feel, moving dully along in the middle of the surrounding hullabaloo.”
After her dealer ran out of blow: “If you expect nothing from somebody you are never disappointed.”
While reading up on Girardian theory: “I am afraid. I am not solid, but hollow. I feel behind my eyes a numb, paralyzed cavern, a pit of hell, a mimicking nothingness.”
When she sat under a fig tree: "I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn’t make up my mind which of the figs I would choose,"
Talking to Camus while on laughing gas: "“Everything people did seemed so silly, because they only died in the end."
At the gay pride parade: "I didn’t really see why people should look at me. Plenty of people looked queerer than I did.”
After she got attacked by a tiger: “I felt limp and betrayed, like the skin shed by a terrible animal. It was a relief to be free of the animal, but it seemed to have taken my spirit with it, and everything else it could lay its paws on."
