A Garden In Chicago Analysis

Author: poem of Karl Shapiro Type: poem Views: 40

Sponsored Links

In the mid-city, under an oiled sky,

I lay in a garden of such dusky green

It seemed the dregs of the imagination.

Hedged round by elegant spears of iron fence

My face became a moon to absent suns.

A low heat beat upon my reading face;

There rose no roses in that gritty place

But blue-gray lilacs hung their tassels out.

Hard zinnias and ugly marigolds

And one sweet statue of a child stood by.

A gutter of poetry flowed outside the yard,

Making me think I was a bird of prose;

For overhead, bagged in a golden cloud,

There hung the fatted souls of animals,

Wile at my eyes bright dots of butterflies

Turned off and on like distant neon signs.

Assuming that this garden still exists,

One ancient lady patrols the zinnias

(She looks like George Washington crossing the Delaware),

The janitor wanders to the iron rail,

The traffic mounts bombastically out there,

And across the street in a pitch-black bar

With midnight mirrors, the professional

Takes her first whiskey of the afternoon--

Ah! It is like a breath of country air.

When a novel has a preface by seonmoe other than the book's author, I wait until after I've finished the book until I read it. That way, my preconceived notions are minimized, and having already read the book, I can study the preface in context.
