Of course Lana Del Rey is writing poetry about Sylvia Plath.

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.
