Sylvia Plath - 1962 Interview

Sylvia Plath's Birthday

For a Fatherless Son by Sylvia Plath

You will be aware of an absence, presently,

 Growing beside you, like a tree,
 A death tree, color gone, an Australian gum tree ---
 Balding, gelded by lightning--an illusion,
 And a sky like a pig's backside, an utter lack of attention.
 But right now you are dumb.
 And I love your stupidity,
The blind mirror of it. I look in
 And find no face but my own, and you think that's funny.
 It is good for me
 To have you grab my nose, a ladder rung.
One day you may touch what's wrong ---
 The small skulls, the smashed blue hills, the godawful hush.
 Till then your smiles are found money.

Scott McClanahan Interview @ Oxford American

"If you look at the writing of my peers, I mean the people I’m surrounded by, they’re still writing like Thomas Pynchon or David Foster Wallace. I’m trying to pull it back from this 'prog-rock' and just give you a fucking two minute song, in your face. Don’t like that one? Bam! Here’s another one. Don’t like that one? Bam! Here’s another one. And to look at it that way."
