A Poem About George Doty In The Death House Analysis

Lured by the wall, and drawn

To stare below the roof,

Where pigeons nest aloof

From prowling cats and men,

I count the sash and bar

Secured to granite stone,

And note the daylight gone,

Supper and silence near.



Close to the wall inside,

Immured, empty of love,

A man I have wondered of

Lies patient, vacant-eye.

A month and a day ago

He stopped his car and found

A girl on the darkening ground,

And killed her in the snow.



Beside his cell, I am told,

Hardy perennial bums

Complain till twilight comes

For hunger and for cold.

They hardly know of a day

That saw their hunger pass.

Bred to the dark, their flesh

Peacefully withers away.



The man who sits alone,

He is the one for wonder,

Who sways his fingers under

The cleanly shaven chin,

Who sees, in the shaving mirror

Pinned to the barren wall,

The uprooted ghost of all:

The simple, easy terror.



Caught between sky and earth,

Poor stupid animal,

Stripped naked to the wall,

He saw the blundered birth

Of daemons beyond sound.

Sick of the dark, he rose

For love, and now he goes

Back to the broken ground.



Now, as he grips the chain

And holds the wall, to bear

What no man ever bore,

He hears the bums complain;

But I mourn no soul but his,

Not even the bums who die,

Nor the homely girl whose cry

Crumbled his pleading kiss.
