To The Dead Analysis

What I hope (when I hope) is that we'll

see each other again,--



. . . and again reach the VEIN



in which we loved each other . .

It existed. It existed.



There is a NIGHT within the NIGHT,--



. . . for, like the detectives (the Ritz Brothers)

in The Gorilla,



once we'd been battered by the gorilla



we searched the walls, the intricately carved

impenetrable paneling



for a button, lever, latch



that unlocks a secret door that

reveals at last the secret chambers,



CORRIDORS within WALLS,



(the disenthralling, necessary, dreamed structure

beneath the structure we see,)



that is the HOUSE within the HOUSE . . .



There is a NIGHT within the NIGHT,--



. . . there were (for example) months when I seemed only

to displease, frustrate,



disappoint you--; then, something triggered



a drunk lasting for days, and as you

slowly and shakily sobered up,



sick, throbbing with remorse and self-loathing,



insight like ashes: clung

to; useless; hated . . .



This was the viewing of the power of the waters



while the waters were asleep:--

secrets, histories of loves, betrayals, double-binds



not fit (you thought) for the light of day . . .



There is a NIGHT within the NIGHT,--



. . . for, there at times at night, still we

inhabit the secret place together . . .



Is this wisdom, or self-pity?--



The love I've known is the love of

two people staring



not at each other, but in the same direction.
