Lana Del Rey is on the cover of this month’s Vogue Italia, which also features two of the poems from her forthcoming self-published collection, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass. The first, “Bare feet on linoleum,” begins like this:
Stay on your path Sylvia Plath
don’t fall away like all the others
Don’t take all your secrets alone to your watery grave about
lovers and mother
I always knew Lana Del Rey would be a Plath stan—even if the watery grave concept is much more Woolf. The feature also includes a watercolor that Del Rey painted. See it, and read the rest of the poems here.
