i think this poem is really reflective on her past life and how much she regrets being with Hughes.

I believe Plath is slightly jealous and slightly confused by this women, who is making such a show of her operation, "whipping off your silk scalf".
The face lift provides the woman with a quick fix solution to her problems; Plath has no quick fix to hers.
