Wild Orphan Analysis

Author: poem of Allen Ginsberg Type: poem Views: 11

     Blandly mother

takes him strolling

     by railroad and by river

--he's the son of the absconded

     hot rod angel--

and he imagines cars

     and rides them in his dreams,

so lonely growing up among

     the imaginary automobiles

and dead souls of Tarrytown

     to create

out of his own imagination

     the beauty of his wild

forebears--a mythology

     he cannot inherit.

Will he later hallucinate

     his gods? Waking

among mysteries with

     an insane gleam

of recollection?

     The recognition--

something so rare

     in his soul,

met only in dreams


of another life.

A question of the soul.

     And the injured

losing their injury

     in their innocence

--a cock, a cross,

     an excellence of love.

And the father grieves

     in flophouse

complexities of memory

     a thousand miles

away, unknowing

     of the unexpected

youthful stranger

     bumming toward his door.

                         New York, April 13, 1952

.: :.

How do we know that the mother is mentally handicapped? There is no evidence of that at all. Blandly only means without excitement or enthusiasm.

.: Wild Orphan :.

I liked the way the poet wrote that poem. it really made me feel like i was a part of his actual life and i was there too in the background walking with him along the railroad with his mentally handicapped mother. this is a powerful and great poem!
