A List Of Some Observation... Poem by Joseph Brodsky

A List Of Some Observation...

Rating: 3.2


A list of some observation. In a corner, it's warm.
A glance leaves an imprint on anything it's dwelt on.
Water is glass's most public form.
Man is more frightening than its skeleton.
A nowhere winter evening with wine. A black
porch resists an osier's stiff assaults.
Fixed on an elbow, the body bulks
like a glacier's debris, a moraine of sorts.
A millennium hence, they'll no doubt expose
a fossil bivalve propped behind this gauze
cloth, with the print of lips under the print of fringe,
mumbling "Good night" to a window hinge.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

The poem itself makes some fear in the minds owing of its contents of man is frightening may be the ruler which has a negative feeling but beautiful in poem.

Quite odd, but amusing in parts. Would have been better without the bivalve.
