Salesmanship, With Half A Dram Of Tears Analysis



Author: poem of Brooks Haxton Type: poem Views: 11

Sponsored Links



Gripping the lectern, rocking it, searching

the faces for the souls, for signs of heartfelt

mindfulness at work, I thought, as I recited

words I wrote in tears: instead of tears,

if I had understood my father's business,

I could be selling men's clothes. I could be

kneeling, complimenting someone at the bay

of mirrors, mumblingly, with pinpoints pressed

between my lips. That was the life I held

in scorn while young, because I thought to live

without distraction, using words. Yet, looking

now into the room of strangers' eyes, I wanted

them to feel what I said touch, as palpably

as when a men in double worsted felt

the cuff drop to his wrist. There was a rush

in the applause of gratitude and mercy:

they could go. A teenager, embarrassed

for himself and me, lefthandedly

squeezed my fingers, and said thanks.





Anonymous submission.
