Shelves: poetry

A skylight of wire and glass with a retractable roof
holds the pan of boiling thoughts,
bubbles of air freezing and thawing
come upward from the hardened concrete,
and lends a feeling of drama and steel framework.

We think we are housed in a golden dome,
with carved and trailing flowers, with nymphs
to draw close from the brilliant heavens,
in stacks of glittering elements,
our attachment to the people we know and space.

We move along in the space, its innumerable
walks along the beach but really New Y

This was an award winning poetry book, but I honestly just didn't get much of it. The metaphors seem so random, you'd have to know the poet personally to have any idea what he was getting at. Perhaps if I were an English major I could have made more of it. There were some good lines and some of the poems made you think and feel, perhaps that was the only aim. Possibly the poems were meant to invoke and not convey, still a little clarity or explanation would have been nice.
