The Correspondence School Instructor Says Goodbye To His Poetry Students Analysis

Goodbye, lady in Bangor, who sent me

snapshots of yourself, after definitely hinting

you were beautiful; goodbye,

Miami Beach urologist, who enclosed plain

brown envelopes for the return of your very

Clinical Sonnet; goodbye, manufacturer

of brassieres on the Coast, whose eclogues

give the fullest treatment in literature yet

to the sagging-breast motif; goodbye, you in San Quentin,

who wrote, "Being German my hero is Hitler,"

instead of "Sincerely yours," at the end of long,

neat-scripted letter demolishing

the pre-Raphaelites:I swear to you, it was just my way

of cheering myself up, as I licked

the stamped, self-addressed envelopes,

the game I had

of trying to guess which one of you, this time,

had poisoned his glue.I did care.

I did read each poem entire.

I did say what I thought was the truth

in the mildest words I know.And now,

in this poem, or chopped prose, not any better,

I realize, than those troubled lines

I kept sending back to you,

I have to say I am relieved it is over:

at the end I could feel only pity

for that urge toward more life

your poems kept smothering in words, the smell

of which, days later, would tingle

in your nostrils as new, God-given impulses

to write.Goodbye,

you who are, for me, the postmarks again

of shattered towns-Xenia, Burnt Cabins, Hornell-

their loneliness

given away in poems, only their solitude kept.
