The Misunderstanding Analysis

Author: poem of Bill Knott Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links

I'm charmed yet chagrined by this misunderstanding--

As when, after a riot, my city's smashed-in stores appear all

Boarded up, billboarded over, with ads for wind-insurance.

Similarly, swimmingly, I miss the point. You too?

And my misunderstanding doesn't stop there, it grows--soon

I can't see why that sudden influx of fugitives,

All the world's escapees, rubbing themselves lasciviously against the

       Berlin Wall.

They stick like placards to it. Like napalm. Like ads for--

And me, I haven't even bought my biodegradable genitalia yet!

No. I was born slow, but picking up speed I run through

Our burnt-out streets, screaming, refusing to buy a house.

Finally, exasperated, the misunderstanding overtakes me, snatches


Handcuffs. So now here I am, found with all you others

Impatiently craning, in this queue that rumors out of sight up ahead


Clutching our cash eager to purchase whatever it is, nervous

As if bombs were about to practice land-reform upon our bodies,

Redistribution of eyes, toes, arms, here we stand. Then, some new

       Age starts.
