Dolor Analysis

1943I have known the inexorable sadness of pencils,

Neat in their boxes, dolor of pad and paper weight,

All the misery of manilla folders and mucilage,

Desolation in immaculate public places,

Lonely reception room, lavatory, switchboard,

The unalterable pathos of basin and pitcher,

Ritual of multigraph, paper-clip, comma,

Endless duplication of lives and objects.

And I have seen dust from the walls of institutions,

Finer than flour, alive, more dangerous than silica,

Sift, almost invisible, through long afternoons of tedium,

Dropping a fine film on nails and delicate eyebrows,

Glazing the pale hair, the duplicate grey standard faces.

.: Subject and form :.

The overall theme of this poem is to condemn institutions. He is angry and bored with the monotonous environment they create. He thinks they just create boring and dilluted individuals that become ultimately the same, photocopied, image.
He's written it to resemble an Italian sonnet, which are 8 and 6. Roethkes is 8 and 5. The change of mood comes at the end of the first sentence. Note that the poem has only two sentences and is very continual and fluid. He could possibly have written it different than the average sonnet to defy the rules of the norm. This supports his overall theme of being unique and not submitting to the dullness of routine.
