To Plath, To Sexton

i was the only one to vote for this poem and before it was nothing now it is 100% percent excellent or is it...
plath and sexton go hand in hand down the road into their oblivion.
Did they write poems to an empty house?
The word empty suggests they were only one their, the only ones insane or sane?

If the house is the mind what is their tree, the tree that killed them that grew in their own garden? They nourished it and the tree fell together with death into their house. Sexton was right she was locked in the wrong house.
Jean came close to limning the shape of Plath and Sexton's existence.
She too like many of us saw the flower within them.
