The Man Into Whose Yard You Should Not Hit Your Ball Analysis



Author: poem of Thomas Lux Type: poem Views: 12

each day mowed

and mowed his lawn, his dry quarter acre,

the machine slicing a wisp

from each blade's tip. Dust storms rose

around the roar: 6:00 P.M., every day,

spring, summer, fall. If he could mow

the snow he would.

On one side, his neighbors the cows

turned their backs to him

and did what they do to the grass.

Where he worked, I don't know

but it sets his jaw to: tight.

His wife a cipher, shoebox tissue,

a shattered apron. As if

into her head he drove a wedge of shale.

Years later his daughter goes to jail.



Mow, mow, mow his lawn

gently down a decade's summers.

On his other side lived mine and me,

across a narrow pasture, often fallow;

a field of fly balls, the best part of childhood

and baseball, but one could not cross his line

and if it did,

as one did in 1956

and another in 1958,

it came back coleslaw -- his lawn mower

ate it up, happy

to cut something, no matter

what the manual said

about foreign objects,

stones, or sticks.
