Garbageman: The Man With The Orderly Mind

Rating: 2.9
What do you think of us in fuzzy endeavor, you whose directions are

sterling, whose lunge is straight?

Can you make a reason, how can you pardon us who memorize the rules and never score?

Who memorize the rules from your own text but never quite transfer them to the game,

Who never quite receive the whistling ball, who gawk, begin to absorb the crowd's own roar.

I'm sure many learned poets consider this a great poem, but I simply do not get it. Ms. Brooks throws down so many images and none of them seem to relate to the title of the work.

I will not go into this poem. It requires much writing to be just to it. There is much in these lines, but I will say that " how can you pardon us" is a statement in the form of a question around which the poem is based or revolves.
