The Crying Room Analysis

Author: Poetry of Lee Upton Type: Poetry Views: 177

The church had a crying room-

up at the opposite side of the altar.

Good for the baby.

It was glass on all sides like a tank.

A microphone brought in the priestís voice.

From the crying room we could see

how things happened backstage:

someone coming to the priest

with a bell and a napkin.

We werenít soundproof.

Every time the baby cried

a pewful turned to us.

But then, after a point,

the parishioners were almost used to

the intermittent little shrieks,

the baby wanting down,

wanting up.

This was in a town

with the sea just a block away

and remarkable sea winds,

winds to lift, to accost, to warn.

I was holding the crying baby

behind the glass doors.

I could look out at the parishioners

who had gone to the trouble

to make a place for the smallest

throats among them,

even though they were used

to being pushed by invisible forces.

They were right to put distractions

ahead of them in glass

as if to preserve and in

preserving to distort,

and yet not fail to see

exactly who made trouble for them.
