The bees are absent,
I am more afraid.

For Day 9 of April Poetry Month, Magaly at 'imaginary garden with real toads' asks us to Twitter Me a Gothic Poem, i.e. to create one 3-stanza poem with a touch of Gothic, made up of a twitter conversation by two famous poets (in their styles) and oneself. These are, in order: @sylviaplath, @williamblake, and @snakypoet (my actual twitter handle). I didn't think this really worked as one poem – Blake's voice too different – so cheated a bit with both title and subtitle, to try and make it right. But I do get some things right – each tweet above is exactly 140 characters.
