Bat Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

His awful skin

stretched out by some tradesman

is like my skin, here between my fingers,

a kind of webbing, a kind of frog.

Surely when first born my face was this tiny

and before I was born surely I could fly.

Not well, mind you, only a veil of skin

from my arms to my waist.

I flew at night, too. Not to be seen

for if I were I'd be taken down.

In August perhaps as the trees rose to the stars

I have flown from leaf to leaf in the thick dark.

If you had caught me with your flashlight

you would have seen a pink corpse with wings,

out, out, from her mother's belly, all furry

and hoarse skimming over the houses, the armies.

That's why the dogs of your house sniff me.

They know I'm something to be caught

somewhere in the cemetery hanging upside down

like a misshapen udder.
