    • POEM: The Fishermen At&Nbsp;Guasti&Nbsp;Park by Maurya Simon (9/24/2005 1:26:00 PM)

      Sunday = Shabbat. The scene timeless in the sense of almost infinitely repeated, across times, cultures, classes. Like a Dutch genre painting, the onions, wine and nails, dogs and bait and prey work as religious or phiolosphical symbols. But the summer sun (or, for some reason, I saw a dusk scene) as adulthood, the absence of childhood (and of e? desire? aspiration?) : I first mistook the author as projecting absence of though. But rereading saw the closing as a question, a mystery, as projecting that men and wives, meditating, which is a reasonable and not class-based assumption, but rather pointing to the mystery of our condition, our 'keeping company' in our solitude. (And without the resolution of Marvell, et al, who spelled out what they knew or could only guess of the unity, eternity or glory beyond) .
      So I liked this poem a lot.
