The Earth Analysis

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

Sponsored Links

God loafs around heaven,

without a shape

but He would like to smoke His cigar

or bite His fingernails

and so forth.

God owns heaven

but He craves the earth,

the earth with its little sleepy caves,

its bird resting at the kitchen window,

even its murders lined up like broken chairs,

even its writers digging into their souls

with jackhammers,

even its hucksters selling their animals

for gold,

even its babies sniffing for their music,

the farm house, white as a bone,

sitting in the lap of its corn,

even the statue holding up its widowed life,

but most of all He envies the bodies,

He who has no body.

The eyes, opening and shutting like keyholes

and never forgetting, recording by thousands,

the skull with its brains like eels--

the tablet of the world--

the bones and their joints

that build and break for any trick,

the genitals,

the ballast of the eternal,

and the heart, of course,

that swallows the tides

and spits them out cleansed.

He does not envy the soul so much.

He is all soul

but He would like to house it in a body

and come down

and give it a bath

now and then.
