Dolor Analysis



Author: poem of Theodore Roethke Type: poem Views: 27

I have known the inexorable sadness of pencils,

Neat in their boxes, dolor of pad and paper weight,

All the misery of manilla folders and mucilage,

Desolation in immaculate public places,

Lonely reception room, lavatory, switchboard,

The unalterable pathos of basin and pitcher,

Ritual of multigraph, paper-clip, comma,

Endless duplication of lives and objects.

And I have seen dust from the walls of institutions,

Finer than flour, alive, more dangerous than silica,

Sift, almost invisible, through long afternoons of tedium,

Dropping a fine film on nails and delicate eyebrows,

Glazing the pale hair, the duplicate grey standard faces.

.: :.

I think this poem is trying to convey the boringness of ritual. We go about our daily lives seeing the same unimportant things, oblivious to bigger realities. We learn from change, so rituals can really restrict our lives if we get stuck in the same mindset for a long period of time. Also, i think this poem is showing how some old fashion institutions should be dropped, just like some traditions should be dropped.
