The Earth Falls Down Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 3

If I could blame it all on the weather,

the snow like the cadaver's table,

the trees turned into knitting needles,

the ground as hard as a frozen haddock,

the pond wearing its mustache of frost.

If I could blame conditions on that,

if I could blame the hearts of strangers

striding muffled down the street,

or blame the dogs, every color,

sniffing each other

and pissing on the doorstep...

If I could blame the bosses

and the presidents for

their unpardonable songs...

If I could blame it on all

the mothers and fathers of the world,

they of the lessons, the pellets of power,

they of the love surrounding you like batter...

Blame it on God perhaps?

He of the first opening

that pushed us all into our first mistakes?

No, I'll blame it on Man

For Man is God

and man is eating the earth up

like a candy bar

and not one of them can be left alone with the ocean

for it is known he will gulp it all down.

The stars (possibly) are safe.

At least for the moment.

The stars are pears

that no one can reach,

even for a wedding.

Perhaps for a death.
