It was taken some time ago.
At first it seems to be
a smeared
print: blurred lines and grey flecks
blended with the paper;

then, as you scan
it, you see in the left-hand corner
a thing that is like a branch: part of a tree
(balsam or spruce) emerging
and, to the right, halfway up
what ought to be a gentle
slope, a small frame house.

In the background there is a lake,
and beyond that, some low hills.

(The photograph was taken
the day after I drowned.

I am in the lake, in the center
of the picture, just under the surface.

It is difficult to say where
precisely, or to say
how large or small I am:
the effect of water
on light is a distortion

but if you look long enough,
you will be able to see me.)

.: :.

I believe this poem is about the speaker\'s suicide,
she first describes the beautiful scenery of the poem; and in this description she mentions a tree...she puts the species of the tree inside parenthesis, as if the species is unimportant, but she wishes to mention it anyway. She also does this when she mentions her own death at the end of the poem, the entirety of her self description is in parenthesis as if to say \"Oh yeah, here\'s this minor detail...\" Also, the fact that the picture was taken the day after her death makes it seem as though the world didn\'t mourn her death in that the photographer basically photographed her grave which upon first glance seems beautiful, scerene; rather than melancholic which is how it should be seen.
The last line of the poem the speaker mentions how people will be too distracted by the beauty of the scene to truly see the speaker lying beneath the surface of the water; the water which could symbolize the facade which she presented to the world...
