The Doctor Of The Heart Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 9

Sponsored Links

Take away your knowledge, Doktor.

It doesn't butter me up.

You say my heart is sick unto.

You ought to have more respect!

you with the goo on the suction cup.

You with your wires and electrodes

fastened at my ankle and wrist,

sucking up the biological breast.

You with your zigzag machine

playing like the stock market up and down.

Give me the Phi Beta key you always twirl

and I will make a gold crown for my molar.

I will take a slug if you please

and make myself a perfectly good appendix.

Give me a fingernail for an eyeglass.

The world was milky all along.

I will take an iron and press out

my slipped disk until it is flat.

But take away my mother's carcinoma

for I have only one cup of fetus tears.

Take away my father's cerebral hemorrhage

for I have only a jigger of blood in my hand.

Take away my sister's broken neck

for I have only my schoolroom ruler for a cure.

Is there such a device for my heart?

I have only a gimmick called magic fingers.

Let me dilate like a bad debt.

Here is a sponge. I can squeeze it myself.

O heart, tobacco red heart,

beat like a rock guitar.

I am at the ship's prow.

I am no longer the suicide

with her raft and paddle.

Herr Doktor! I'll no longer die

to spite you, you wallowing

seasick grounded man.
