The Table Analysis

To rise from the table

he put his hands upon it—

ate and drank

and played cards upon it.

Wrote to his mother,

blessed her,

made politics upon it,

pressed the fly leaf,

let poinsettias yellow upon it,

dropped the bread and killed the crust upon it,

read his Edgar Allan Poe upon it,

sponged the boards and tumblers,

wedged and split

the knife upon it



but when he turned the table over,

its four legs up in the air

like a dead horse,

that's when he ended our bargaining,

that's when he gripped more than the table

and took more than signals from across the table,

more than tappings, rustlings, eye blinks,

negotiation's soft wiring,

that's when he lunged over the legs of the table,

that's when at last—how long do I have to wait—

he turned over the precinct

and drafted his declaration and colonial address,

that's when nothing could go on under the table

and that's when he got the table to work.
