Oh Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

It is snowing and death bugs me

as stubborn as insomnia.

The fierce bubbles of chalk,

the little white lesions

settle on the street outside.

It is snowing and the ninety

year old woman who was combing

out her long white wraith hair

is gone, embalmed even now,

even tonight her arms are smooth

muskets at her side and nothing

issues from her but her last word - "Oh." Surprised by death.

It is snowing. Paper spots

are falling from the punch.

Hello? Mrs. Death is here!

She suffers according to the digits

of my hate. I hear the filaments

of alabaster. I would lie down

with them and lift my madness

off like a wig. I would lie

outside in a room of wool

and let the snow cover me.

Paris white or flake white

or argentine, all in the washbasin

of my mouth, calling, "Oh."

I am empty. I am witless.

Death is here. There is no

other settlement. Snow!

See the mark, the pock, the pock!

Meanwhile you pour tea

with your handsome gentle hands.

Then you deliberately take your

forefinger and point it at my temple,

saying, "You suicide bitch!

I'd like to take a corkscrew

and screw out all your brains

and you'd never be back ever."

And I close my eyes over the steaming

tea and see God opening His teeth.

"Oh." He says.

I see the child in me writing, "Oh."

Oh, my dear, not why.

Cathy,Sage advice. Using your teuichqne one of the things I learned when I was in corporate was to take 30 seconds to update people on requests they'd made of me. This not only prevented them from interrupting me when I was focused, but it stopped the frustration I felt from having them check up on me.' Keep up the great work! x x

Ops! I've got to take this call. I'll get back to you when time allows!

Thanks, everybody! I adore this idea, Marie, slpmiy ADORE it. I don't often trot out my sense of humor in my work, slpmiy wouldn't play well in some of my stories, but I sure do in In the Red with Zachary and my delightfully insane forensic accountant, Brian Foster. If you keep doing Saturday Snark? Count me in!
