The Skunk Analysis



Author: poem of Seamus Heaney Type: poem Views: 20

Up, black, striped and demasked like the chasuble

At a funeral mass, the skunk's tail

Paraded the skunk. Night after night

I expected her like a visitor.



The refrigerator whinnied into silence.

My desk light softened beyond the verandah.

Small oranges loomed in the orange tree.

I began to be tense as a voyeur.



After eleven years i was composing

Love-letters again, broaching the 'wife'

Like a stored cask, as if its slender vowel

Had mutated into the night earth and air



Of California. The beautiful, useless

Tang of eucalyptus spelt your absense.

The aftermath of a mouthful of wine

Was like inhaling you off a cold pillow.



And there she was, the intent and glamorous,

Ordinary, mysterious skunk,

Mythologized, demythologized,

Snuffing the boards five feet beyond me.



It all came back to me last night, stirred

By the sootfall of your things at bedtime,

Your head-down, tail-up hunt in a bottom drawer

For the black plunge-line nightdress.





Anonymous submission.
