EATING POETRY MARK STRAND I A POEM… EATING POETRY INK RUNS FROM THE CORNERS OF MY MOUTH. THERE IS NO HAPPINESS LIKE MINE. I HAVE BEEN EATING POETRY. THE LIBRARIAN DOES NOT BELIEVE WHAT SHE SEES. HER EYES ARE SAD AND SHE WALKS WITH HER HANDS IN HER DRESS. THE POEMS ARE GONE. THE LIGHT IS DIM. THE DOGS ARE ON THE BASEMENT STAIRS AND COMING UP. Symbols • * This word or line is cool • ! This is something important • ? I don’t get it: I don’t understand this line or phrase THEIR EYEBALLS ROLL, THEIR BLOND LEGS BURN LIKE BRUSH. THE POOR LIBRARIAN BEGINS TO STAMP HER FEET AND WEEP. SHE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND. WHEN I GET ON MY KNEES AND LICK HER HAND, SHE SCREAMS. I AM A NEW MAN, I SNARL AT HER AND BARK, I ROMP WITH JOY IN THE BOOKISH DARK

The dogs are on the basement stairs This is a little scary I wonder what it means to introduce dogs? I lick her hand Did he turn into a dog? I wonder what is real and what is meant to be shocking?
