Leaning Into The Afternoons Analysis

Leaning into the afternoons,

I cast my sad nets towards your oceanic eyes.

There, in the highest blaze my solitude lengthens and flames;

Its arms turning like a drowning man's.

I send out red signals across your absent eyes

That wave like the sea, or the beach by a lighthouse.

You keep only darkness my distant female;

>From your regard sometimes, the coast of dread emerges.



Leaning into the afternoons,

I fling my sad nets to that sea that is thrashed

By your oceanic eyes.

The birds of night peck at the first stars

That flash like my soul when I love you.

The night, gallops on its shadowy mare

Shedding blue tassels over the land.

.: :.

To me,
The line "I cast my sad nets towards your oceanic eyes" illustrates the speakers inability to gain control of the woman's eyes. Oceanic means both relating to the ocean, and immense and endless. Nets cannot take hold of the liquid ocean.
