Make houses shrink

Make houses shrink
And trees diminish
By going far; my look's leash
Dangles the puppet-people
Who, unaware how they dwindle,
Laugh, kiss, get drunk,
Nor guess that if I choose to blink
They die.

Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath is one of my favourite poets. She has a quite peculiar way of looking at the world, always very critic and sharp. 'puppet-people'. wonderfully matched :)

Glad you like her poems, she is one of my favourite poets too.
Interesting photo, where is it taken?
