    This poem is an excellent example of enjambment: One would think that this small sample would be a typical love poem, but there is a better description-tragedy. The first two optomistic lines provide a visual metaphor for the companionship of two lovers: Hook-in-eye is the link between two sides of a shirt... or skirt... or pair of pants.... (or so one would think) . But, Atwood is speaking litterally about this metaphor...

    She REALLY means a fishing hook being stuck into someone's eyeball!


    Come on, who doesn't want to say that to their ex-boyfriend? ? (Report) Reply
