For God While Sleeping Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 3

Sponsored Links

Sleeping in fever, I am unfair

to know just who you are:

hung up like a pig on exhibit,

the delicate wrists,

the beard drooling blood and vinegar;

hooked to your own weight,

jolting toward death under your nameplate.

Everyone in this crowd needs a bath.

I am dressed in rags.

The mother wears blue.

You grind your teeth

and with each new breath

your jaws gape and your diaper sags.

I am not to blame

for all this. I do not know your name.

Skinny man, you are somebody's fault.

You ride on dark poles --

a wooden bird that a trader built

for some fool who felt

that he could make the flight. Now you roll

in your sleep, seasick

on your own breathing, poor old convict.

In the first line, \"unfair\" should be \"unfit\"
And the fourth line of the second stanza should be added onto the end of the third line
