Unlike, For Example, The Sound Of A Riptooth Saw Analysis



Author: poem of Thomas Lux Type: poem Views: 10

Sponsored Links



gnawing through a shinbone, a high howl

inside of which a bloody, slashed-by-growls note

is heard, unlike that

sound, and instead, its opposite: a barely sounded

sound (put your nuclear ears

on for it, your giant hearing horn, its cornucopia mouth

wide) -- a slippery whoosh of rain

sliding down a mirror

leaned against a windfallen tree stump, the sound

a child's head makes

falling against his mother's breast,

or the sound, from a mile away, as the town undertaker

lets Grammy's wrist

slip from his grip

and fall to the shiny table. And, if you turn

your head just right

and open all your ears,

you might hear

this finest sound, this lost sound: a plow's silvery prow

cleaving the earth (your finger

dragging through milk, a razor

cutting silk) like a clipper ship cuts the sea.

If you do hear this sound,

then follow it with your ear and also your eye

as it and the tractor that pulls it

disappear over a hill

until it is no sound at all,

until it comes back over the hill again,

again dragging its furrow,

its ground-rhythm, its wide open throat, behind it.
