Leaving Early Analysis

Lady, your room is lousy with flowers.

When you kick me out, that's what I'll remember,

Me, sitting here bored as a loepard

In your jungle of wine-bottle lamps,

Velvet pillows the color of blood pudding

And the white china flying fish from Italy.

I forget you, hearing the cut flowers

Sipping their liquids from assorted pots,

Pitchers and Coronation goblets

Like Monday drunkards. The milky berries

Bow down, a local constellation,

Toward their admirers in the tabletop:

Mobs of eyeballs looking up.

Are those petals of leaves you've paried with them ---

Those green-striped ovals of silver tissue?

The red geraniums I know.

Friends, friends. They stink of armpits

And the invovled maladies of autumn,

Musky as a lovebed the morning after.

My nostrils prickle with nostalgia.

Henna hags:cloth of your cloth.

They tow old water thick as fog.

The roses in the Toby jug

Gave up the ghost last night. High time.

Their yellow corsets were ready to split.

You snored, and I heard the petals unlatch,

Tapping and ticking like nervous fingers.

You should have junked them before they died.

Daybreak discovered the bureau lid

Littered with Chinese hands. Now I'm stared at

By chrysanthemums the size

Of Holofernes' head, dipped in the same

Magenta as this fubsy sofa.

In the mirror their doubles back them up.

Listen: your tenant mice

Are rattling the cracker packets. Fine flour

Muffles their bird feet: they whistle for joy.

And you doze on, nose to the wall.

This mizzle fits me like a sad jacket.

How did we make it up to your attic?

You handed me gin in a glass bud vase.

We slept like stones. Lady, what am I doing

With a lung full of dust and a tongue of wood,

Knee-deep in the cold swamped by flowers?
