Oh, That Ted!

Sylvia smokes cigarettes
because she thinks they make her look sexy.

She blows smoke in her daughter’s face.
Her daughter squints and coughs.

She blows smoke in her son’s face.
He crawls away crying.

She blows smoke in Ted’s face.
He smacks her across the mouth.

Believe it or not it took me a couple of reads to make the Sylvia Plath connection; it works fine just on its own merits.

I have a biopic lying about somewhere I must really watch one of these days.
