Wallace Stevens On His Way To Work Analysis



Author: poem of David Wagoner Type: poem Views: 14

He would leave early and walk slowly


     As if balancing books


          On the way to school, already expecting


To be tardy once again and heavy


     With numbers, the unfashionably rounded


          Toes of his shoes invisible beyond


The slope of his corporation. He would pause


     At his favorite fundamentally sound


          Park bench, which had been the birthplace


Of paeans and ruminations on other mornings,


     And would turn his back to it, having gauged the distance


          Between his knees and the edge of the hardwood


Almost invariably unoccupied


     At this enlightened hour by the bums of nighttime


          (For whom the owlish eye of the moon


Had been closed by daylight), and would give himself wholly over


     Backwards and trustingly downwards


          And be well seated there. He would remove


From his sinister jacket pocket a postcard


     And touch it and retouch it with the point


          Of the fountain he produced at his fingertips


And fill it with his never-before-uttered


     Runes and obbligatos and pellucidly cryptic


          Duets from private pageants, from broken ends


Of fandangos with the amoeba chaos chaos


     Couchant and rampant. Then he would rise


          With an effort as heartfelt as a decision


To get out of bed on Sunday and carefully


     Relocate his center of gravity


          Above and beyond an imaginary axis


Between his feet and carry the good news


     Along the path and the sidewalk, well on his way


          To readjusting the business of the earth.
