The Fallen Angels Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 16

Sponsored Links

They come on to my clean

sheet of paper and leave a Rorschach blot.

They do not do this to be mean,

they do it to give me a sign

they want me, as Aubrey Beardsley once said,

to shove it around till something comes.

Clumsy as I am,

I do it.

For I am like them -

both saved and lost,

tumbling downward like Humpty Dumpty

off the alphabet.

Each morning I push them off my bed

and when they get in the salad

rolling in it like a dog,

I pick each one out

just the way my daughter

picks out the anchoives.

In May they dance on the jonquils,

wearing out their toes,

laughing like fish.

In November, the dread month,

they suck the childhood out of the berries

and turn them sour and inedible.

Yet they keep me company.

They wiggle up life.

They pass out their magic

like Assorted Lifesavers.

They go with me to the dentist

and protect me form the drill.

At the same time,

they go to class with me

and lie to my students.

O fallen angel,

the companion within me,

whisper something holy

before you pinch me

into the grave.
