Orpheus Plays The Bronx Analysis

Author: poem of Reginald Shepherd Type: poem Views: 12

When I was ten (no, younger

than that
), my mother tried

to kill herself (without the facts

there can't be faith
). One death

or another every day, Tanqueray bottles

halo the bed and she won't wake up

all weekend. In the myth book's color

illustration, the poet turns around

inside the mouth of hell to look at her

losing him (because it's not her fault

they had to meet there
): so he can keep her

somewhere safe, save her place

till she comes back. Some say

she stepped on an asp, a handful of pills

littered the floor with their blues,

their red and yellow music. Al Green

was on the radio. (You were

at school, who's ever even seen

an asp?
) It bruised her heel

purple and black. So death

could get some color to fill out

his skin, another bony white boy

jealous of all her laugh too loud, her

That's my song when Barry White

comes on. He's just got

to steal it, he can't resist

a bad pun, never never gonna give her

up, or back. The pictures don't prove

anything, but one thing I remember

about the myth's still true:

the man can't live if she does.

She survived to die for good.
