a written conversation
what does it mean, metaphorically, that the speaker's dirty boots are the cause of the only tracks tread on the new winter? If dirty boots treading on the new winter (possibly a metaphor for the future) represents future-eating, why is the speaker the only one partaking in future-eating, when the "we" is such a prevalent aspect of the poem?and what if you combined lines 4 and 5 to be:one where all is clean white
yo anonymous the first, i believe you, you know stuff.
As far as the first post is concerned, I believe the line, "one where all is clean" followed by "and white" is separated so as to create an emphasis on the Western world's penchant for imperialism. What with the now defunct "British Empire," as well as the current, "American Empire," I feel that the lines should play as they are. Besides, it would create a line that is too long for the second half of the stanza. When it comes to this kind break in a poem, the writer has written it such in order to make the audience think. "'Why is one where all is clean' and, 'and white' not in the same sentence?"There is obviously something there.
angsty, wah wah
