The Poet Of Ignorance Analysis



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

Perhaps the earth is floating,

I do not know.

Perhaps the stars are little paper cutups

made by some giant scissors,

I do not know.

Perhaps the moon is a frozen tear,

I do not know.

Perhaps God is only a deep voice

heard by the deaf,

I do not know.



Perhaps I am no one.

True, I have a body

and I cannot escape from it.

I would like to fly out of my head,

but that is out of the question.

It is written on the tablet of destiny

that I am stuck here in this human form.

That being the case

I would like to call attention to my problem.



There is an animal inside me,

clutiching fast to my heart,

a huge carb.

The doctors of Boston

have thrown up their hands.

They have tried scalpels,

needles, poison gasses adn the like.

The crab remains.

It is a great weight.

I try to forget it, go about my business,

cook the broccoli, open the shut books,

brush my teeth and tie my shoes.

I have tried prayer

but as I pray the crab grips harder

and the pain enlarges.



I had a dream once,

perhaps it was a dream,

that the crab was my ignorance of God.

But who am I to believe in dreams?





Anonymous submission.
