Cold, I was, like snow, like ivory. I thought He will not touch me, But he did He kissed my stone-cool lips. He stayed. He thumbed my marble eyes. His words were terrible. My ears were sculpture Stone-deaf, shells. I heard the sea. I drowned him out.
Seeds of wisdom from an opinionated pumpkin
The poem takes on a very dark tone throughout, and highlights issues such as sexism and even rape. The opening stanza sets the poem and its continuous theme as it portrays how the woman feels extremely uncomfortable. Nearing the end of the poem she gave into to what the man wanted in fear of being harmed and faked her pleasure towards the man and furthermore he never wanted to see her again in fear that she would become too attached. The purpose of this is to show how in society it is deemed normal for a man to be wanted by a women and it is his right to feel wanted, yet when a women actually shows interest in the man, they fear commitment and leave with no explanation. The poem has seven stanzas of unequal length. You are commenting using your WordPress.
